Abstract:A female Neotoma micropus infected with Leishmania was collected in Zavala County, Texas, on 15 January 1990. The infection was limited to lesions at the bases of the ears, and the parasite grew readily in Schneider's Drosophila medium supplemented with 20% fetal bovine serum. Isozyme analysis determined the parasite to be Leishmania mexicana.
