Two cases of leptospirosis with involvement of the central nervous system

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V04190247

A 26-year-old woman developed fever, myalgias and headaches two weeks after having been scratched by a rat, which she kept as a pet. She had limited renal involvement and marginal pleocytosis in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). A 51-year-old man had just returned from a holiday with water sports activities and was admitted with fever, severe headaches, neck pain, myalgias and signs of acute renal failure and pleocytosis in the CSF. Both patients had positive Leptospira DNA polymerase chain reaction in their CSF and were treated to full remission.
