clinical manifestation. The diagnosis is done by the immunochromatography method, a blood sample was
taken from each patient as well as other 30 healthy control matching in age and gender. The study included
measurement of the level of interleukin -6,23 and Amylase activity in sera of patients and healthy control.
The result indicated that anti –salmonella IgM positive in 54 cases, anti- salmonella IgG positive in 50
