Leptospirosis, water sports, and chemoprophylaxis.
Clin Infect Dis. 2002 May 01; 34(9):e40-3.CI

Abstract

Recreational activities, such as water sports and adventure travel, are emerging as an important risk factor for leptospirosis, a potentially fatal zoonosis. We report the clinical course of 2 patients who acquired leptospirosis through participation in water sports. Physicians caring for patients who participate in adventure travel involving water sports should be familiar with the risk factors for and diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of leptospirosis.
