[The identification of Leptospira strains of different origins].Rev Cubana Med Trop. 1992; 44(1):33-6.RC
Leptospirosis is at present an ever-increasing problem in human and animal health. By means of the Korthof medium, 43 Leptospira strains were isolated from samples of human blood, water and soil. For their identification the microagglutination technique was used. The strains corresponded to the species Leptospira biflexa and Leptospira interrogans.
