PMID: 11716098

We conducted a quasi-experimental study to compare the response to meglumine antimonate in patients with localized cutaneous leishmaniasis from 2 endemic areas of Brazil who were infected by 2 Leishmania species. 61 were infected by L. (Viannia) braziliensis (group B) and 57 by L. (V.) guyanensis (group G).
