Pulmonary Radiographic Findings in Leptospirosis Patients

Dr. Ajinkya Maheshwari, Dr. Purvi Desai, Dr. Bhagwati Ukani

We studied chest radiographs of 45 patients who presented during June 2015 to October 2016 at New civil hospital, Surat who had a high serum immunofluorescent assay titer for leptospirosis. Thirty five of 45 (77 %) patients had abnormal chest films. Nearly all of these patients had respiratory symptoms and needed oxygen therapy. 40 of the 45 (65 %) had respiratory symptoms, but only 35/40 (87 %) had abnormal radiographs. 23 of the 35 (65 %) and 20/35 (57 %) who had abnormal chest radiographs had coexisting impaired renal function or jaundice, respectively. There were 6/35 (17 %) patients who had abnormal chest radiographs without renal or liver impairment.
