In the winter months of 2008 and 2009, treponemal infections in 154 free ranging wild European brown hares (Lepus europaeus) from Central Italy were diagnosed by serological tests for human syphilis. Positive results were found in 51/154 samples (33%). A correlation of increased seropositivity was found with the age group of the hares as well as the density of the hare population. There were no significant differences of seropositivity between male and female genders.

Abstract

In the winter months of 2008 and 2009, treponemal infections in 154 free ranging wild European brown hares (Lepus europaeus) from Central Italy were diagnosed by serological tests for human syphilis. Positive results were found in 51/154 samples (33%). A correlation of increased seropositivity was found with the age group of the hares as well as the density of the hare population. There were no significant differences of seropositivity between male and female genders.
