Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (CL) is one of the most prevalent clinical forms of leishmaniasis. Preliminary data suggest that cytokine gene polymorphisms can contribute to resistance or susceptibility to CL. Therefore, we investigated the association of functional polymorphisms in four cytokine genes with susceptibility to, and clinical outcome of CL. A total of 201 patients with self-healing cutaneous leishmaniasis (SCL) and 92 asymptomatic infected controls (AIC) from Fars province as well as 58… CONTINUE READING
