VELASCO-CASTREJON, Oscar; TENORIO, Guadalupe  and  RIVAS-SANCHEZ, Beatriz. Differential diagnosis between toxoplasmosis and leptospirosis of 26 Mexican cases with posterior uveitis. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 2005, vol.57, n.1, pp.77-78. ISSN 0375-0760.

26 patients with active posterior uveitis were studied by methodologies for the confirmation of leptospirosis. ELISA-IgG was positive in 10 patients and MAT in 21. Leptospiras were observed in blood and urine. The results suggest that posterior uveitis may be caused by pathogenic leptospiras.

Keywords : Leptospirosis; uveitis; diagnosis.
