Abstract: A strain ofLeptospira kirschneri(serogroup Grippotyphosa) was cultured fromurine of a mare post-abortion in Brazil and characterized by serogrouping, multi-ple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis, PGFE, and sequencing ofgenesrrsandsecY. Strains ofL. kirschnerihave apparently never been recoveredfrom horses in tropical area, only in Europe and USA. Knowledge of local epi-demiology is important to interpret genetic profiles of leptospires circulating inan area.
