Abstract

Aim: The present study is focused with an objective to assess the Weil’s disease and its association with hepatic damage and other co-infections. Methods: Leptospirosis was detected by microscopic agglutination test (MAT). These samples were assessed to find out the hepatic damage by liver markers such as amino transferase (ALT and AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), bilirubin and proteins specifically total protein and albumin quantification. Results: Widal test and semi quantitative slide test were carried out to confirm typhoid .Total and Direct bilirubin quantification were carried out to diagnose Jaundice. Conclusion: Based on the results, the patients were grouped into five categories as Normal, Patients with Leptospirosis, Patients with Leptospirosis and Typhoid, Patients with Leptospirosis and Jaundice, Patients with Leptospirosis, Typhoid and Jaundice. Out of 40 samples, 35 were diagnosed as Leptospirosis patients and 5 samples were considered as normal. Key words: Leptospirosis; Microscopic Agglutination Test; Widal test; Liver markers; Typhoid.
