Evidência de transmissão de leishmaniose visceral por Lutzomyia cruzi no município de Jaciara, Estado de Mato Grosso, Brasil

Abstract: The occurrences of positive cases in humans and dogs, the presence of Lutzomyia cruzi and the absence of Lutzomyia longipalpis together with the detection of natural infection with Leishmania (Leishmania) infantum chagasi, indicate that Lutzomyia cruzi participates in visceral leishmaniasis transmission in Jaciara, State of Mato Grosso, Brazil.

“…cruzi has a wide geographic distribution at Mato Grosso, which is found in 24 municipalities but had not previously been reported from Cáceres 39 . Meanwhile, its finding at anthropized environments in Laranjeira II and Mata Comprida has epidemiological importance as it has previously been reported from Jaciara, MT 43 ; Corumbá, MS; and Ladário, MS 44 . At these municipalities, cases of human and canine visceral leishmaniasis were reported in the absence of Lutzomyia longipalpis, and with a detection of natural infection of Lu.…”

“…The dogs in the municipality of Jaciara (i.e., an urban area) presented a higher risk of being seropositive because this region is endemic for the disease 3 . This also confi rms the autochthonous nature of CVL in this municipality, as does the fact that the dogs had been living in this locality for more than 1 year.…”
