In a serological survey in intensively managed swine herds in northern Greece (280 samples) and southern Greece (120 samples), 28.2% of samples were positive for Leptospira interrogans serovars and 3% for Brucella species. These pathogens of public health significance should be systematically investigated in Greece, a swine brucellosis-free country.
