Occurrence of Leishmania (Leishmania) chagasi in a domestic cat (Felis catus) in Andradina, São Paulo, Brazil: case report

Abstract: This work describes natural infection by Leishmania in a domestic cat where amastigote forms of the parasite were observed in the popliteal lymph node imprint. Positive and negative serological reactions were observed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA), respectively. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) revealed that the nucleotide sequence of the sample was identical to Leishmania (L.) chagasi. This is the first report of the disease in felines of the city of A… Show more

“…A significant association between Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and L. infantum positivity was found only in few cases (Pennisi et al, 1998;Sobrinho et al, 2012;Spada et al, 2013). However, the review of 89 reported cases of FeL where cats were serologically tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) provides a 30.3% prevalence of FIV coinfection in cats with FeL and only four cats with FeLV co-infection (three of them also FIV positive) were detected (Bardagi et al, 2016;Basso et al, 2016;Brianti et al, 2015;Britti et al, 2005;Caracappa et al, 2008;Coelho et al, 2010;Dalmau et al, 2008;Dedola et al, 2015;Fileccia, 2012;Grevot et al, 2005;Hervás et al, 1999;Ibba, 2009;Laruelle-Magalon and Toga, 1996;Leiva et al, 2005;Marcos et al, 2009;Migliazzo et al, 2015;Ozon et al, 1998;Pennisi et al, 2013;Pimenta et al, 2015;Pocholle et al, 2012;Poli et al, 2002;Richter et al, 2014;Rüfenacht et al, 2005;Sanches et al, 2011;Verneuil, 2013;Vides et al, 2011). Other FeL cases reported in FIV negative cats were diagnosed in animals affected by immune-mediated diseases (and treated with immunosuppressive drugs), neoplasia, or diabetes mellitus (Bardagi et al, 2016;Basso et al, 2016;Caracappa et al, 2008;Laruelle-Magalon and Toga, 1996;Leiva et al, 2005;Maia et al, 2015;…”

“…Nonetheless, the real susceptibility of cats to infection by Leishmania spp., their role as reservoir hosts, and the outcome of leishmaniosis in these animals, are poorly understood [ 19 ]. Several Leishmania species such as L. mexicana [ 20 ], L. venezuelensis [ 21 ], L. braziliensis [ 22 – 24 ], L. amazonensis [ 25 ] and L. infantum [ 15 , 26 29 ] have been identified to infect cats in Central and South America.…”
