New isolation of Leishmania enriettii Muniz and Medina, 1948 in Paranástate, Brazil, 50 years after the first description, and isoenzymatic polymorphism of the L. enriettii taxon.

Abstract

Three cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis in guinea-pigs from a rural area near Curitiba (Paraná State, Brazil) are reported. The three parasite isolates were characterized by isoenzyme electrophoresis as Leishmania enriettii, of which two distinct zymodemes were observed.
