Leptospira interrogans.png
  • Leptospira interrogans are spirochete bacteria classified into nonpathogenic, intermediate, or pathogenic species and inhabit soil and freshwater reservoirs, predominately in tropical regions. Infection with pathogenic Leptospira spp. can result in a large range of clinical manifestations, including fever, renal failure, jaundice, hemorrhage, meningitis, and death. As the severe manifestation of disease, it has an annual global incidence of over 1 million human cases and a case fatality rate of from 5% to 20%[1][2].
