Collection description

Leishmaniasis is an infectious disease caused by protozoan parasites of over 20 species of Leishmania which occurs in three forms in humans: visceral (the most severe), cutaneous (the most common) and mucocutaneous. Almost all Leishmania species are pathogenic for mammals and many of them are zoonotic and have animal reservoirs, including the three species known to cause the disease in Tunisia: Leishmania infantum, Leishmania major, and Leishmania killicki (syn. tropica). Domestic dogs are the main reservoir of canine leishmaniasis in Italy and in Tunisia, and can also host infections of L. major and L. tropica. Furthermore, CanL co-infection/co-exposure with other vector-borne pathogens plays a major role in clinical manifestations and influences the course of the infection and may consequently display important risk factors for its establishment, progression and further spread to other animals and humans
