Abstract

Leptospirosis is a globally distributed zoonosis with a broad clinical spectrum. Thisthe disease mostly affects
liver and kidney tissues. Other organs can be affected by leptospirosis-induced vasculitis. In addition, cardiac
manifestations are common, and the presence of transient ECG abnormalities can be found in 50-60 % of the
patients(1). Early diagnosis and adequate supportive therapy are crucial for the appropriate management of
symptoms. In this article, we present a case of leptospirosis with myocarditis with hypokalemia and non-oliguric
acute renal failure. All clinical findings gradually regressed after treatment.
