ABSTRACT
Leptospirosis is probably the worlds most widespread zoonosis of global importance. It occurs in both developed and developing countries and large outbreaks have been reported from all over the world. Leptospirosis is now being recognized as a re-emerging infectious disease. Understanding the epidemiology of this infectious disease in Morocco is a critical step for designing interventions and consequently diminishing the risk of leptospirosis transmission. This study reviews on the epidemiological features of leptospirosis in Morocco between 2001 and 2010. Moreover, depending on these epidemiological data preventive measures are being suggested.
