BackgroundLeishmania siamensis, a newly identified species, has been reported as a causative agent of leishmaniasis in Thailand. This organism has been identified and genetically characterized using PCR techniques based on several target genes. However, the sensitivities and specificities of these methods for the diagnosis of L. siamensis infection have never been evaluated.MethodsTo evaluate the sensitivities and specificities of PCR methods to detect L. siamensis infection, PCR for different… CONTINUE READING
