A histological classification of cutaneous leishmaniasis and its geographical expression

, : A histological classification of cutaneous leishmaniasis and its geographical expression. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 74(4): 515-521

A histological comparison was made of 4 geographically distinct groups of cutaneous leishmaniasis (147 patients in all). The main finding concerned the relationship between host tolerance of the parasite, the lysis of macrophages and the damage to connective tissue. In the Brazilian group in which parasites were almost undetectable, there was maximal damage to connective tissues.
