Visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil trends and challenges


, : Visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil trends and challenges. Cadernos De Saude Publica: 12, 2941-2947

The urbanization of visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil has been related to environmental changes, migration, interaction and spread of sylvatic reservoirs and infected dogs to areas with no transmission, and adaptation of the vector <i>Lutzomyia longipalpis</i> to the peridomiciliary environment. During 1980-2005, Brazil recorded 59 129 cases of visceral leishmaniasis, 82.5% of which was reported in the Northeast region.
