  • donovani
  • Pneumonia , tuberculosis , and dysentery are omnipresent in the depressed regions where leishmaniasis thrives, and, as with AIDS , it is these opportunistic infections that are more likely to kill, flaring up in a host whose immune system has been weakened by the L. donovani infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • canine leishmaniasis
  • For the disease in canids, see canine leishmaniasis . (wikipedia.org)
  • Where transmission occurs peridomestically and vectors are accessible to treatment, as in parts of tropical America, insecticides are expected to reduce the incidence of human ZVL even more effectively than they reduce the prevalence of canine leishmaniasis, a result that should encourage properly designed vector control trials. (ajtmh.org)
  • In Europe, where vector control is less likely to be successful and canine leishmaniasis is a major veterinary problem, a dog vaccine is highly desirable. (ajtmh.org)

  • Acute
  • Renal function was evaluated in 11 patients with visceral leishmaniasis, and results stated that 5 patients presented macroscopic haematuria and 1 developed acute nephritic syndrome [ 11 ], while urine examination showed proteinuria in 10 patients and haematuria and leukocyturia in 7 and 6 cases, respectively.
