ABSTRACT
The article presents a study related to the potential role of Phlebotomus (Anaphlebotomus) rodhaini, in transmission of Leishmania donovani. The study was conducted in Dinder National Park, eastern Sudan, with a zoonotic focus of visceral leishmaniasis. Previous work on this site revealed high infection rates of Leishmania donovani in Phlebotomus orientalis. It is concluded that P. rodhaini is a possible vector of L. donovani, but cannot be held responsible for infection in humans. The background, results, and conclusions of the study, are discussed in detail.

    The monthly activity of sand flies, which are vectors of leishmaniasis, was studied from May to October 1997 in three regions (plains, mountainous, coastal) of the Sistan-Bluchistan Province using sticky paper traps. In each village, three houses were selected. 30 sticky traps were installed...

    Background: In the Indian subcontinent, Visceral leishmaniasis is endemic in a geographical area coinciding with the Lower Gangetic Plain, at low altitude. VL occurring in residents of hill districts is therefore often considered the result of Leishmania donovani infection during travel. Early...

    Kala-azar i.e, Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) is a menace to Bihar, affecting large number of population. As per WHO, one-third cases of Kala-azar are reported from Bihar itself. Diagnosis and case detection is done by rk39. Miltefosine has been rolled out in 16 highly endemic districts of Bihar;...

    Visceral leishmaniasis (VL), commonly known as kala-azar, is caused by Leishmania donovani and Leishmania infantum (Leishmania chagasi in the Americas). These Leishmania species infect macrophages throughout the viscera, and parasites are typically found in the spleen, liver and bone marrow....
