||Nov. 1986, Vol.43, No.11, p.721-725. Illus. 10 ref.
||Leptospirosis is a febrile disease caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. It is relatively common in Great Britain (48-120 confirmed cases annually in the period 1980-1985), and it can be fatal. Its changing epidemiology is discussed - the new emerging hazard is exposure to cattle leptospirosis by dairy workers.
