Özet

Leptospirosis affects humans in both urban and rural areas, and in temperate and tropical climates. The spectrum of human disease caused by leptospires is extremely wide, ranging from subclinical infection to a severe syndrome of multiorgan infection with high mortality. However, the great majority of the infection has either subclinical or very mild illness; hereby, most patients do not seek medical attention. We herein present two patients with leptospirosis hospitalized due to unexplained fever, anemia, and hepatosplenomegaly.
