Abstract

A previously well 62-year-old male from North Queensland presented with leptospirosis featuring fever, renal failure, hepatitis and pulmonary haemorrhage. Management was greatly complicated by severe and previously unrecognized aortic stenosis with a peak valve gradient of 125 mmHg. A successful outcome followed careful haemodynamic management and treatment of the infective illness with subsequent valve replacement.
