Leptospirosis is a widespread infectious disease that is prevalent in tropical regions due to the favorable environmental survival conditions. The various species of leptospira of the spirochete family are responsible for transmission of disease. Leptospirosis is a biphasic disease that begins flu like symptoms. The first phase resolves and the patient is briefly asymptomatic until the second phase begins. Leptospirosis starts suddenly, with a severe headache, redness in the eyes, muscle pains, fatigue and nausea and a fever of 39°C or above. The diagnosis of Leptospirosis in generally carried out by direct visualization of leptospirosis in blood or urine by darkfield microscopic examination. And various staining methods are also used for the diagnosis. The antibiotic therapy is generally used for the treatment purpose.
