Here we present a case of concomitant pancreatitis and cholangitis in a young female patient with culture-proven Salmonella Typhi in the blood which was sensitive to Meropenem and Azithromycin only. The multiple drug-resistant strain of Salmonella Typhi can lead to serious complications as was present in our case. The resistance is acquired by alteration in the genome sequence. Currently, control of such an unknown outbreak of Salmonella Typhi's multiple drug-resistant strains are important, since it is a serious healthcare issue in disease control and prevention of endemic countries.
