Leishmania panamensis en el pie

En los Estados Unidos, la leishmaniasis se observa en las personas que han viajado fuera del país. Hay varios tipos diferentes de leishmaniasis, pero todos son transmitidos por la picadura del cagachín. Se desarrolla una úlcera inicial en el sitio de la picadura, como aparece aquí, y a partir de ella, la infección se disemina por todo el cuerpo.Leishmania panamensis en el pie
