INTRODUCTION Leptospirosis is one of the considered emerging zoonotic complication of global importance and is located in both urban and rural areas of affected countries. The disease was most prevalent in countries with large rural and developing areas such as China, Brazil, India, Romania and Russia. More deaths occurred in these countries, where the limited availability of medical attention is directly linked to the developing nature of the country. Our country, Philippines is also affected with the disease called Leptospirosis. Leptospirosis is the malady induced by the genus Leptospira. Leptospirosis can be permeated to humans through gash and lacerations of the skin, or through the pores with water tainted with urine of infected animals. Urine excretion of the organism by carrier animals, in particular rodents, is the primary environmental source of infections. In humans, the disease is manifest with symptoms similar to that of other diseases such as dengue, rickettsia, malaria and hepatitis. Specific symptoms of leptospirosis may include chills, malaise, headaches and abdominal pain

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
