Abstract: Abstract:The first autochthonous case of American cutaneous leishmaniasis was reported in the Federal District in 1980, and the species involved in this type of leishmaniasis was unknown. This study aimed to identify the species that causes the disease in the Federal District and to investigate its clinical and epidemiological aspects. Between 2000 and 2007, 71 autochthonous cases of leishmaniasis were reported in the Federal District. Leishmania species were identified by means of direct immunofluorescence re… Show more

In Midwestern Brazil, the predominant species involved in ACL are L. (V.) braziliensis and L. (L.) amazonensis , and the former is responsible for 90% of the cases . Autochthonous ACL caused by other species has not been described in our region…”
