Abstract

Clinical symptomps of typhoid and paratyphoid fever greatly vary, while the gold standard of its laboratory examination is bacterial culture which commonly takes 3 days for the results. Further tests should be performed to support diagnosis of this disease. The tests possibly performed to patients with suspected typhoid are C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR). CRP is an acute-phase protein that is tested to nonspecifically monitor the occurrence of an infection, while ESR is a nonspecific test for inflammation which is clinically functional for screening inflammatory diseases. The aim of this study is to determine the correlation between CRP and ESR in patients with positive Widal test. This study uses correlation analysis to 30 samples which fit inclusion criteria in RS Roemani Muhammadiyah Semarang and are obtained by purposive sampling. The samples were tested the CRP concentration by semi-quantitative latex immunoagglutination method and were tested the ESR by westergren method. The results shows average concentration of CRP was 18.40 mg/L, and average number of ESR was 15.20 mm/h. Statistical analysis uses in this study is pearson correlation test. A strong and significant correlation between CRP and ESR in patients with positive Widal with p-value = 0.000 (p < 0.05) and r = 0.886 is obtained.
