Animals as reservoir hosts for Leishmania in Qualyobia Governorate, Egypt



Journal of the Egyptian Society of Parasitology 20(2): 779-788



A total of 239 rodents were collected from El-Khanka, Shebin El-Kanater, El-Kanater, Shoubra El Khima, Qualiob, Tokh, Benha and Kair-Shokr, Egypt, and identified as Mus musculus (30), Rattus rattus (78), Rattus norvegicus (35), Arvicanthis niloticus (62) and Acomys cahirinus (34). Examination of these rodents showed the presence of cutaneous lesions in 2 R. rattus, 3 R. norvegicus and one A. cahirinus which showed no Leishmania parasites either by smear or culture.
