Human leptospiroses in the island of Reunion have a common point: they are severe diseases. Approximately 50 to 60 cases are biologically diagnosed every year. The number of cases is correlated with rainfall. The predominating serogroup is Icterohaemorrhagiae, followed by Canicola, Grippotyphosa and Australis.
