KOVAL, Ariel Alejandro et al. First isolation of Leptospira borgpetersenii serovar Hardjo type Hardjo Bovis from aclinical case in cattle in Argentina. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.3, pp.61-70. ISSN 0325-7541.

We here describe the first isolation and molecular typing of Leptospira borgpe-tersenii serovar Hardjo Bovis in Argentina, obtained from urine of aborted cows from abreeding herd located in Saladillo, Buenos Aires Province. The abortions occurred in coincidence with important floods with many cows presenting suspicious serological titers and subsequentseroconversion. The percentage of abortions was 3.5% of a herd of 1700 cows and the microor-ganism was isolated from 7 of the 20 urine samples obtained.
