ABSTRACT
It has been hypothesized that leishmania parasites escape the host defence mechanisms by mimicry of human blood group antigen, conflicting reports have been published. The distribution of blood goup types of human infected with cutaneous leishmaniasis was compared with control subjects. For each patient and control the following data were collected: age, sex, ethnic origin frequency of contamination with plant materials. In total number of infected persons 51.7% were males and 48.3% females. The highest rate of leishmaniasis were seen in the group of less than 10 years old and the least rate were in the age group of 40 to 55year. We tested the hypothesis in cutaneous leishmaniasis, due to Leishmania major, by comparing to distribution of blood groups (ABO and Rhesus) among 482 patients in Isfahan central Iran with that among 1032 healthy controls. No association between blood groups and disease was found in this study, but further studies are needed with strains of the Leishmania donovani infantum.
