Ecoepidemiology of leishmaniases in Syria. 3. Leishmania major infection in Psammomys obesus provides clues to life history of the rodent and possible control measures



Ecoepidemiology of leishmaniases in Syria. 3. Leishmania major infection in Psammomys obesus provides clues to life history of the rodent and possible control measures



Annales de Parasitologie Humaine et Comparee 67(6): 163-165



A total of 64 and 53 P. obesus were collected from Dmeir, 40 km N.E. of Damascus, Syria, in May 1990 and November 1991, respectively. 65 of the 117 animals showed lesions, parasitological confirmation by culture was attempted on 46, and L. major infection was confirmed in 33. All animals with visible lesions were adults. In May 1990, 42 of 54 adults showed large lesions. In November 1991, 23 of 36 adults had small lesions.
