Leptospirosis has a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations varying, from inapparent influenza like illness to fulminant fatal disease with hepato-renal dysfunction and hemorrhagic phenomena. Our cases had fever, puffiness, respiratory distress and bleeding diathesis as leading manifestations. Leptospirosis was suspected in view of epidemic situation prevailing in the city. We report four cases here, three of which survived and one died.
