No leptospiral DNA was found in the patient's cerebrospinal fluid; no Leptospira
There are a great variety of Leptospira
serovars present in swine herds worldwide, causing stillbirths, mummified fetuses, and the births of runt piglets (RAMOS et al., 2006).
The clinical presentation of Leptospira
infection varies from asymptomatic to the severe and fatal form as seen in this case.
This disease is caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira
, the presence of Leptospira
icterohaemorrhagiae (1) was demonstrated, Is considered to be an emerging disease (2), its clinical symptoms, laboratory tests and the environmental conditions in which it lived and worked make up a triangle confirming the diagnosis of Weil's Disease or Leptospirosis.
The doctor does this by identifying Leptospira
in cultures of blood, urine or cerebrospinal fluid samples or, more commonly, by detecting antibodies against the bacteria in the blood.
The logistic regression showed a statistically higher number of cases of seropositive dogs for Leptospira
For the diagnosis of Leptospira
, a double antibody sandwich assay (DAS-ELISA) (Linnodee bovine Leptospira
Elisa kit) was used to detect antibodies in response to lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) of Leptospira
borgpetersenii serovar Hardjo (hardjp bovis) and Leptospira
interrogans serovar Hardjo (lPS) hardjo pratjino.
Es causada por bacterias del genero Leptospira
, especie L.
(17) A lack of knowledge in naturally circulating Leptospira
compounds the difficulty in linking human host to disease in the rodents.
borgpetersenii genomes are relatively smaller when compared to those of other Leptospira
Rapid identification and characterization of isolated Leptospira
can contribute to the surveillance of local serovars, tracking for a novel pattern of disease presentation and development of intervention measures .
Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease caused by infection with pathogenic Leptospira
