Résumé traduit : Dans les pays où des données longitudinales sont disponibles, on note une nette augmentation de la proportion de leptospirose associée aux voyages au fil du temps. Les modèles de déclaration montrent clairement une sous-estimation flagrante de cette maladie en raison du manque d'installations de diagnostic. L'essor des voyages et de l'écotourisme dans le monde a conduit à des changements dramatiques dans l'épidémiologie de la leptospirose. Nous explorons les obstacles à la prévention, au dépistage et au diagnostic de la leptopirose dans les systèmes de santé des pays endémiques et du migrant ou voyageur de retour. Nous soulignons la nécessité d'élaborer des lignes directrices et des stratégies de prévention de la leptospirose liées aux voyages et aux migrations, y compris en renforçant la sensibilisation à la maladie parmi les professionnels de la santé dans les pays à revenu élevé. – guatemalt

PLOS 26/04/18 Frequency of exposure of endangered Caspian seals to Canine distemper virus, Leptospira interrogans, and Toxoplasma gondii. Abstract Canine distemper virus (CDV), Leptospira interrogans, and Toxoplasma gondii are potentially lethal pathogens associated with decline in marine mammal populations.

PLOS 26/04/18 Frequency of exposure of endangered Caspian seals to Canine distemper virus, Leptospira interrogans, and Toxoplasma gondii

The Caspian Sea is home for the endangered Caspian seal (Pusa caspica). In the late 1990s and early 2000s, CDV caused a series of mortality events involving at least several thousand Caspian seals. To assess current infection status in Caspian seals, we surveyed for antibodies to three pathogens with potential to cause mortality in marine mammals. During 2015–2017, we tested serum samples from 36, apparently healthy, Caspian seals, accidentally caught in fishing nets in the Caspian Sea off Northern Iran, for antibodies to CDV, L. interrogans, and T. gondii, by virus neutralization, microscopic agglutination, and modified agglutination, respectively.

BMC VETERINARY RESEARCH 17/07/18 Diagnosis of acute canine leptospirosis using multiple laboratory tests and characterization of the isolated strains. Sample collection and inclusion criteria Urine and blood samples were collected from 33 dogs with suspected clinical leptospirosis presented to the University of São Paulo Veterinary Hospital Service (Hovet FMVZ-USP) between 2013 and 2016. The dogs were suspected of acute leptospirosis when presenting with high serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine levels of unknown origin (> 60 mg/dL and 1.4 mg/dL, respectively) in association with two or more clinical manifestations suggestive of leptospirosis (hemorrhagic disorders, fever, vomiting, jaundice, prostration, hyporexia/anorexia).

Dogs presenting with polyuria, polydipsia and weight loss a month prior to the presentation at the veterinary ambulatory were not included in the study in order to rule out chronic kidney disease bias. Leptospiral culturing, PCR and MAT were performed in all suspected dogs at clinical presentation, and samples were collected prior to the institution of antimicrobial therapy. Diagnostic criteria.

BMC Microbiology 03/05/17 Simultaneous detection of chikungunya virus, dengue virus and human pathogenic Leptospira genomes using a multiplex TaqMan® assay. The aim of our study was to implement a syndromic approach based upon the use of a multiplex real time RT-PCR assay to facilitate rapid diagnosis of dengue-like syndromes in Reunion Island. This syndromic approach was in phase with regional health agency preoccupations because of the recurrent occurrences of leptospirosis but also taking into account the unprecedented major CHIKV outbreak in 2005–2006 and the regular number of clustered cases of DENV [22].

On the one hand, the use of a syndromic panel is appealing for economic reasons.

The present study evaluated the utility of modified Faine’s criteria (with amendment) 2012 for the diagnosis of leptospirosis in Sri Lanka. Diagnosis of leptospirosis in the rural hospitals with minimal facilities is a major challenge. This study aimed at facilitating diagnosis using a simple method utilizing clinical, epidemiological and basic laboratory investigations available in rural hospitals.

Leptospirosis mimics a number of other important infections due to the nonspecific nature of the clinical presentation and therefore can be misdiagnosed frequently. Further, confirmatory laboratory tests for leptospira such as MAT and PCR are only available in reference laboratories where the facilities for leptospira culture and molecular biology are available. Therefore, it is essential that feasible and reliable diagnostic criteria based on clinical symptoms and basic laboratory tests be identified and their diagnostic utility evaluated for resource poor settings such as Sri Lanka.
