Leptospirosis is a zoonosis having a worldwide prevalence and has recently emerged as a major public health problem, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Likewise, dengue is one of the major endemic health problems in the Indian subcontinent. It is a mosquito-borne arboviral infection causing considerable morbidity and mortality. Epidemiologically, mixed infections of dengue and leptospirosis are possible because similar environmental conditions are needed for the transmission of both these infections. Still, their coinfection is rarely reported in medical literature. Here, we report three such cases of dengue and leptospirosis coinfection, encountered in clinical practice during the monsoon season at Kolkata, West Bengal, India.
