In brief: See below

Clinical features and lab testing are not specific, a high index of suspicion must be maintained for the diagnosis.
Cultures can be done growing the bacteria. Serologic test: labs and include the microscopic agglutination test (mat), macroscopic agglutination test, indirect hemagglutination, and elisa. Mat is considered the gold standard. Molecular techniques (pcr) are being developed.
