Abstract

Leptospirosis is a zoonotic infection with higher incidence in tropics. Leptospirosis, is known for its variable manifestations, and is a clinical challenge for physicians in the tropics. Experienced clinicians, at times can mistake leptospirosis for non-medical conditions. A few reports of leptospirosis presenting as acalculous cholecystitis was found in review of literature. We intent to highlight acalculous cholecystitis as a rare but clinically significant presentation of leptospirosis.
