Abstract


Leptospirosis is probably the most widespread and prevalent zoonotic disease in the world. It is difficult to diagnose both in the clinic and the laboratory. Therefore, the disease is frequently not recognized and consequently severely neglected. Leptospirosis is (re-)emerging globally and numerous outbreaks have occurred worldwide during the past decade. Leptospirosis affects humans in rural and urban settings and in industrialized and developing countries. The most recent examples are the epidemics in Nicaragua in 2007, in Sri Lanka in 2008 and in the Philippines in 2009, each affecting several thousands of people and causing hundreds of deaths. Based on global data collection 300,000
