Leptospirosis and kidneys: a clinical case

Abstract

We describe here the case of a young patient, employed in agriculture, who entered the emergency room with fever, headache, hematuria and a worsening of renal function; we diagnosed leptospirosis with renal involvement. As the patient lamented very generic symptoms, the anamnesis was fundamental in leading us to suspect an infection, execute the right laboratory analysis, and correctly diagnose a pathology which is currently very rare in Italy.
