The Bacilli are present not only in the intestine but elsewhere. Early in the disease they can be readily obtained from the blood. They are found in the skin lesions, the "rose spots," also in the urine. The internal structures, as the spleen, mesenteric nodes, and gall-bladder, contain them. The organisms may remain within the body for a long time after convalescence and then give rise to suppuration, as ostitis, parotitis, and meningitis. They may be present in the gall-bladder for years and be discharged continually in the feces. Such persons are called "typhoid carriers" and may accidentally infect many others.
