Paratyphoid fever has been a disease of public health problem in Asian countries. In India clinical cases of paratyphoid had been emerging on escalating rates. This problem requires a consistent monitoring of the isolation throughout the nation to analyze the spectrum of the Salmonella enteric serovar Paratyphi A. This study examined isolation of Salmonella paratyphi A from a clinical sample of paratyphi A obtained from Yashoda hospital, Ghaziabad. This sample was characterized by biotyping as well as serotyping. The characterization of the bacteria was re-confirmed at National Salmonella and Esherichia Centre, Kasauli. The isolate serotyping was based on somatic O and phase 1/2 flagellar antigens by agglutination tests with antisera according to the Kauffmann White scheme. The clinical isolate was confirmed to be a case of Salmonella paratyphi A by biotyping and serotyping. The bacteria achieved a complete growth when propagated in the laboratory in controlled temperature, humidity and pH. This study enlights the Salmonella paratyphi A characterization by biotyping and serotyping as well as cultivation tecnhnique in laboratory. The escalating rate of paratyphoid infections appears as a budding problem which requires the advancement in diagnostic techniques as well as effective vaccines for Salmonella enterica serovar Paratyphi A to deal with emerging cases of infections.

Keywords: Biotyping; Serotyping; Cultivation; Salmonella paratyphi A; India.
