A forensic case of suspected Leptospirosis with fatal course was resolved by the molecular detection of Leptospira interrogans in postmortem human tissues and in environmental samples. Polymerase chain reaction analysis and DNA sequencing confirmed the clinical diagnosis of Weil syndrome, and the death was considered to be an occupational accident with all the legal implications.

Abstract

A forensic case of suspected Leptospirosis with fatal course was resolved by the molecular detection of Leptospira interrogans in postmortem human tissues and in environmental samples. Polymerase chain reaction analysis and DNA sequencing confirmed the clinical diagnosis of Weil syndrome, and the death was considered to be an occupational accident with all the legal implications.
