Abstract

Leptospirosis has been known to affect both man and animal worldwide resulting in morbidity and mortality. Infection in domestic animals and wildlife can lead to economic loss and pose a potential spread to the communities. Man contacted the disease by direct contact with infected blood, tissues, organs or urine of infected hosts. Transmission can also occur by direct penetration of the leptospira organism through the conjunctiva or surface epithelium.
