    Typhoid is a bacterial infection and can be diagnosed in the same way as any other such infection- through identification of other symptoms or running cultures to identify the presence of the pathogen.

    That would come under the "identification of other symptoms" part, for example the visual signs of fever associated with these infections and the trademark blotching on the abdomen.
