Case Reports
M. Houterman, F.H. Bosch, J. van Vliet

We report two cases of leptospirosis with multi-organ failure
after fishing for carp in fresh water. One patient died of
progressive liver failure, while the other patient recovered fully.
Leptospirosis is the most common zoonosis in humans, with
a potentially fatal outcome. We expect an increase in the near
future due to global warming and societal changes.
