CABEZAS ALFONSO, Hildefonso; CABEZAS GOMEZ, Omar; BENCOMO FONTE, . Laura Marta  and  PEREZ QUINTANA, Quintana. Isolation of a strain from the Bataviae pathogenic complex in patient vaccinated against copenhageni, canicola and mozdok. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 2005, vol.57, n.1, pp.73-74. ISSN 0375-0760.

A Leptospira strain was isolated from a hemoculture of a patient admitted with suspicion of leptospirosis that had been previously vaccinated. It corrresponded to the Bataviae pathogenic complex. This result shows that there exists immunogenic specificity and that other serogroups should be incorporated to the current vaccine.

Keywords : Leptospira; hemoculture; serogroup.
