SAMUDIO-D, GC; CUEVAS, C; BRIZUELA-E, S  and  CORONEL, J. Leptospirosis in Pediatric Medicine. A Case Report. Pediatr. (Asunción) [online]. 2010, vol.37, n.1, pp.48-51. ISSN 1683-9803.

Leptospirosis is a disease that presents generally in tropical countries and is associated with flooding. Its clinical forms range from mild to severe, with the latter form being potentially fatal. We present the case of a 4-year old female patient diagnosed with mild-form leptospirosis and the patients’ evolution and treatment.

Keywords : Leptospirosis; pediatrics.
