Microagglutination test results, showing serologic evidence of leptospirosis in humans, Union of the Comoros, 2011. The percentage of positive cases is shown for each island; the number below the percentage indicates the number of positive serum samples/total number tested. The serogroups identified on each island are shown; numbers represent the number of positive serum samples and, in parentheses, the number of corresponding titers. When agglutination was observed with >1 serogroup, the ser

The percentage of positive cases is shown for each island; the number below the percentage indicates the number of positive serum samples/total number tested. The serogroups identified on each island are shown; numbers represent the number of positive serum samples and, in parentheses, the number of corresponding titers. When agglutination was observed with >1 serogroup, the serogroup with a titer difference >2 relative to other serogroups was considered to be the infecting serogroup; when no serogroup had a titer difference >2 relative to other serogroups, coagglutinins were considered to be present in the serum sample. Data for Mayotte Island are from previous studies (2,4).
