Leptospirosis occurs worldwide but is most common in temperate or tropical climates. It is an occupational hazard for many people who work outdoors or with animals such as farmers, sewer workers, veterinarians, fish workers, and military personnel. The disease is also a recreational hazard for campers or those who participate in outdoor sports in contaminated areas and has been associated with swimming, wading, and whitewater rafting in contaminated lakes and rivers. The incidence of leptospirosis is increasing among urban children.
