Leptospira strain JICH 05 was isolated from a hospitalized leptospirosis patient in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica. The isolate produced agglutination titers notably against members of serogroup Tarassovi. The strain was considered to represent a new serovar, designated Corredores, of the serogroup Tarassovi. Multilocus sequence genotyping revealed that the strain belongs to Leptospira santarosai. Remark: the abstract of the original paper mentions serogroup Pyrogenes for this serovar, however it should be Tarassovi.Valverde M de L, Goris MG, González V, Anchia ME, Díaz P, Ahmed A, Hartskeerl RA.New serovars of Leptospira isolated from patients in Costa Rica: implications for public health.
