Abstract: <i>Leishmania</i> spp. are intracellular parasitic haemoflagellates that infect macrophages of the skin and viscera to produce disease in their vertebrate hosts. Three major clinical manifestations of <i>leishmaniasis</i> are recognized: visceral, cutaneous and muco- cutaneous <i>leishmaniasis</i>. The disease usually presents as fever, weight loss and hepato-splenomegaly with biochemical abnormalities of hyper-<i> </i>-globulinemia and pancytopenia. It has received increasing attention in developed countries because of the growing number of cases seen in AIDS patients and the occurrence of viescerotropic <i>L. tropica</i> disease among Persian Gulf war participants.
