4/5. Zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in saudi arabia: lesions healing naturally in man followed by a second infection with the same zymodeme of leishmania major.

    A patient with a previous history of an infection with Leishmania b. braziliensis contracted zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) in the Al-Hassa oasis, Eastern Province, saudi arabia. Five lesions healed spontaneously over a period of 40 weeks without treatment. A year after acquiring ZCL he became infected again in the same focus. Isolates of parasites at both episodes were identified as L. major, zymodeme LON-4. Compared with the first infection of ZCL, parasites were fewer in the lesions on the second occasion, the lesions were smaller and healing was quicker (10 weeks). This work and a previous report of patients with active lesions and leishmanial scars suggest that second infections of L. major are not uncommon in the oasis where no autochthonous infections of other species of Leishmania have yet been recorded in man and only one species of phlebotomus (P. papatasi) is known.

Both exogenous and indigenous cases, though in few number, are being reported in several governorates in egypt. The rodent reservoir hosts are playing an important role in the dissemination and spreading of the infection. In this study, two cases of ZCL have been parasitologically detected among 720 of the outpatients attended the primary health care Units in three villages in Imbaba rural area. Of interest, was the detection of two pet cats with ZCL. Examination of 60 pet and stray cats revealed antibodies against leishmaniasis in five cats at a dilution of 1/32 and one at dilution 1/128.
