Cutaneous leishmaniasis in western Sicily (Italy) and preliminary survey of phlebotomine sandflies (Diptera: Psychodidae)



Cutaneous leishmaniasis in western Sicily (Italy) and preliminary survey of phlebotomine sandflies (Diptera: Psychodidae)



Parassitologia 30(2-3): 211-217



A survey of phlebotomine sandflies was carried out using CDC miniature light traps in 2 provinces of western Sicily, Italy, where 65 cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) had been diagnosed by the Dermatology Department of the University of Palermo, between 1977 and 1987. Eight collecting stations, distributed throughout the CL foci of Agrigento and Palermo provinces, produced a total of 2410 specimens (12.8% males).
