Distribuição geográfica de Lutzomyia (Nyssomyia) whitmani (Antunes & Coutinho, 1939) no Estado de Mato Grosso

Abstract: No Estado de Mato Grosso, 100% dos municípios apresentam registros de casos autóctones de leishmaniose tegumentar americana. O presente trabalho objetivou verificar a distribuição geográfica de Lutzomyia whitmani no estado. Mato Grosso possui três ecossistemas distintos, o cerrado, o pantanal e área de domínio amazônico. Os dados sobre a ocorrência de Lutzomyia whitmani foram obtidos a partir de relatórios de pesquisa entomológica realizados pelo Núcleo de Entomologia da Fundação Nacional de Saúde no período d… Show more

“…whitmani, besides being the most abundant overall (167/630), was most frequently found in the savannah (75.4%) as discovered in the State of Mato Grosso by Missawa e cols 5 . It is known that cutaneous leishmaniasis is a zoonosis of rural environments 35,36 similar to the settlements studied here.…”

“…They were found in three biomes (Amazon rainforest, savannah, and Pantanal) 4 . All the 141 cities from the State have recorded autochthonous cases of the integumental form of the disease in these three ecosystems 5 , and the human visceral form is distributed in 34 municipalities of the State of Mato Grosso, with higher prevalence in the south-central and southeast regions of the State 6 . Given the growing incidence and geographic spread of leishmaniasis, as well as the importance of the phlebotomine sandflies in the transmission of Leishmania species, this research aimed to analyze the phlebotomine sandfly fauna (Diptera: Psychodidae) in three rural settlements at the municipality of Cáceres, State of Mato Grosso, with a view to developing better control measures.…”

“…This fl y can be found in various MT biomes, such as Cerrado (tropical savannah), the Amazonian rainforest and Pantanal (tropical wetland). The phlebotomine sandfl y fauna in these biomes is widely diversifi ed and consists of species such as Lutzomyia fl aviscutellata, L. intermedia, L. migonei, L. umbratilis, L. wellcomei and L. whitmani 5,6 all of them involved in the transmission epidemiology of ACL.…”

“…It was identified in a two-year-old child who lived in the Administrative Region (AR) of Guara and who had never left the Federal District (FD) (3). In the early 1990s, the urban presence of Lutzomyia (Nyssomyia) whitmani (phlebotomine sand flies) was reported in the FD (4,5). Four years later, four cases of ACL were published, and the hypothesis of peridomestic infection was raised.…”
