Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that is mainly seen in animals but can be transmitted to people. Leptospirosis is the most common zoonotic disease in the world. It is transmitted by water contaminated with urine that contains the bacteria. A common presentation for leptospirosis is damage to the kidneys, where the bacteria are then shed in the urine.
