Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is an increasing public health problem in Ethiopia. There is a concern that it is spreading with increased incidence. In this study, we used isoenzyme electrophoresis and internal transcribed spacer one (ITS1) PCR-RFLP techniques to identify Leishmania species from CL patients in Ethiopia. We obtained isolates from 55 localized cutaneous leishmaniasis (LCL), 3 diffused cutaneous leishmaniasis (DCL) and 36 biopsy samples from 34 LCL and 2 DCL cases from All Africa… CONTINUE READING
