Leishmaniasis cutánea y mucosa

Abstract Leishmaniasis is caused by an intracellular parasite transmitted to humans by the bite of a sand fly.

The clinical picture is usually afebrile with regional adenopathy 2 The subgenus Viannia Laison and Shaw, includes the following: As part of the adaptation phenomenon of vectors to semi-urban and urban environments, domestic animals play a role as new opportunistic hosts 4. Ulcers may be solitary or multiple; autoinoculation has been observed with the infection at sites distant to the previous mosquito bite as in the forearms by prolonged contact with ulcerated areas 1 Introduction Leishmaniasis is a tropical and subtropical disease caused by an intracellular parasite transmitted to humans by the bite of a sand fly, mainly Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia Europe, Northern Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and part of South America ; exceptionally, transmission has also been reported as a laboratory accident 1.

Hypotheses that explain these variations include a mucocuyanea in the virulence of the parasites, b differences in the cutaneous permeability, c individual variations of genetic susceptibility of the host, and d variations in the attraction of the Phlebotomus toward different individuals 34. Leishmaniasis is a disease with a worldwide distribution; it is found in about 89 countries 45. Ann Trop Med Parasit. Sign In Forgot password?


Infect Disord Drug Targets. The taxonomy of these vectors is as follows: Diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis This form is characterized by anergy that is, lack of cellular immune response to parasite antigens.

Therefore, those parasites are grouped into two subgenera: For a species to be considered a reservoir, it must fulfill two criteria: On the other hand, it has been recognized that different components in the saliva of the Phlebotomus determine the local reaction after the bite.

Lutzomyia absorb sugars that may have an important role in the development of Leishmania in the vector species 7.

Cellular response to leishmaniasis. Exceptionally flagellated forms have been observed. The indirect immunoperoxidase method was evaluated in biopsies with the purpose of increasing the sensitivity of the diagnostic histopathology of tegumentary lesions caused by subspecies of the Leishmania braziliensis complex.

IL, and eventually programmed death 1-mediated T-cell exhaustion, diminishes pathology caused by inflammation. Cross-reactivity was observed with Paracoccidioides braziliensis but not with Mycobacterium leprae, Sporothrix schenckii, or Histoplasma capsulatum.

Clinical picture of cutaneous leishmaniases due to Leishmania Leishmania mexicana in the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico. When special stains such as Wright-Giemsa are used, the protozoan cytoplasm stains blue and the nucleus stains red Close mobile search navigation Article navigation.

Nevertheless, sinceForattini has emphasized the potential capability of vectors to adapt to suburban and urban environments 7.

A two years study on vectors of cutaneous leishmaniasis. Khezzani and Bouchemal, in Algeria, reported 4, confirmed cases of CL in a period of 13 years: Fluconazole has not been demonstrated to be effective as a therapeutic option On rare occasions, the initial lesion may not ulcerate and develop vegetating appearance 12 LCL can heal spontaneously in 3—9 months in the case of L. The protozoan is found in the scraping of cutaneous or mucosal ulcerations especially scraping the borders as well as in non-ulcerated lesions The biological cycle described is performed in 53 to days 1leishmaiasis9.

Spontaneous healing in up to 4 years, in which healing progresses from the periphery to the center of the lesion, has been described
