Nine patients with typhoid fever were given ofloxacin in a daily dosage of 400 mg for ten days. All patients recovered with no relapses. No case of Salmonella typhi carriage was recorded. Diffusion of ofloxacin into mesenteric lymph nodes was studied in four patients. Mean concentration was 1.46 micrograms/g after four 200 mg doses. According to our results, ofloxacin could be considered as one of the alternatives for treating typhoid fever.
