Author(s): Devang J. Barad*, R. Vedamanickam and Saranya Devi K


Weil’s disease is the severe form of leptospirosis and is characterized by renal and hepatic involvement and may be accompanied by development of multi-organ dysfunction along with hemorrhagic manifestation. One such serious type of pulmonary involvement is called severe pulmonary hemorrhagic syndrome which is characterized by profuse lung hemorrhages. We wish to present a case of leptospirosis with Diffuse Alveolar Hemorrhage. It is important to remember that a high index of suspicion of leptospirosis along with its timely diagnosis and management with oxygen therapy, antibiotics and intensive care therapy can prevent morbidity and mortality.
