To the Editor: Leptospirosis in Victoria can be acquired locally or overseas. The clinical manifestations range from asymptomatic disease to multiorgan failure. We performed a retrospective case review of 147 notifications of leptospirosis to the Victorian Department of Health during the period 2002–2012. We aimed to investigate the epidemiology, clinical features and outcomes of leptospirosis in this population and identify any differences between patients who acquired the disease locally and those who acquired it overseas.
