Leptospira is a bacterium that causes acute febrile systemic disease. It is spread by a direct contact with the urine of an infected organism, contaminated water, or an indirect contact with the environment. Severity of symptoms range from mild to severe, such as headache, muscle pain, fever, to bleeding in the lungs. Leptospira can survive for a long time in a humid environment, which is why acute febrile systemic diseases mainly occur from August to November in South Korea.
