Abstract

Leishmaniasis is an endemic disease in large parts of the world including Central and South America. The most prevalent species in Colombia belong to the complex Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis and are responsible for the majority of cases of cutaneous, mucocutaneous and dissiminated cutaneous leishmaniasis. Cases of visceral leishmaniasis in Colombia, in contrast, are always caused by L. (Leishmania) infantum/chagasi.
