Abstract:The Weil Syndrome occurs on very rare occasions and is due to infection with leptospirosis. A 43 year old male patient, admitted in ICU, presenting clinical picture of acute hepatic failure and the lab findings revealed sepsis and renal failure, underwent the procedure of artificial hepatic support and continuous renal support with an additional adsorber. These procedures allowed the favorable evolution of the patient and could be used, in the future, as an efficient treatment in case of hepatic failure, regardless of the underlying cause.
Keywords:leptospirosis, sepsis, acute hepatic failure, renal failure
