Kayaking as a risk factor for leptospirosis.
Mo Med. 1992 Jun; 89(6):354-7.MM

Abstract

Leptospirosis is a common zoonosis present throughout Missouri. Previously regarded as an occupational illness of farmers and sewer workers, it is now primarily acquired from exposure to water polluted with the bacteria Leptospira. We present a case report of leptospirosis acquired through kayaking and review both the disease and the risk factor associated with kayaking.
