Título Leptospirosis in trout farmers
Información bibliográfica 19 Sep. 1981, Vol.II, No.8247, p.626-627. 5 ref.
Resumen 5 cases of leptospirosis, ranging in severity from an influenza-like illness to a fatality, are documented. Leptospiral antibodies were found in these workers. Pond water or trout food contaminated with rat urine is believed to have caused the outbreak. An additional case, at a different location, resulted from a fish farmer wading in rat polluted water with defective rubber boots.
