A leptospirosis outbreak on Guam associated with an athletic event.
Pac Health Dialog. 2002 Sep; 9(2):186-9.PH

Abstract

Following an "extreme-adventure" athletic event on the island of Guam, 21 of 105 participants reported being ill. Three of 10 participants who reporting having a fever (temp > 101EF) had laboratory confirmed leptospirosis. An analysis of risk factors reported by both ill and not-ill race participants suggested that exposure to recreational waters was responsible for these infections.
