The aim of this study was to know about clinical and laboratory manifestations of haemorrhagic disorders in severe leptospirosis patient. Methods: This was an observational descriptive study with cross sectional design. The data were taken from SEALS (Semarang Amsterdam Leptospirosis Studies) case record forms by selected some variables as follows: petechiae, haematuria, haematoschezia, melaena, haematemesis, epystaxis, gum bleeding, haemoptysis, platelet count, prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time. Results: The most clinical appearance of haemorrhagic disorders in severe leptospirosis is petechiae which found in 17 of 112 patients (15,2%), the other clinical manifestations that found in this research are haematuria (0,9%), haematoschezia (0,9%), melaena (0,9%), and haematemesis (1,8%). The common laboratory findings in severe leptospirosis is thrombocytopenia which found in 86 patients (82,7%), prolonged PTT which found in 28 patients (53,8%), and normal aPTT which found in 27 patients (52,9%). Conclusions: The most common haemorrhagic manifestation of patients with severe leptospirosis was petechiae. Thrombocytopenia, prolonged PTT and normal aPTT were frequently found in this study.
