Borincana HS 622 1963
The strain was isolated from a patient in Puerto Rico in 1951 and was first mentioned in a paper by Alexander et al. (1955) under the name L. borincano. It was subsequently given
a valid description by Alexander et al. (1963).
In the Second Report of a joint WHO/FAO Expert Committee on Zoonoses (1959) the strain is listed in Annex 6 under the serovar name borincana with the note "provisionally classified pending further work". In the WHO list of 1967 it appears as a recognized serovar. The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1977), who suggested that it should be placed in a subgroup to be named as Borincana.
