Phlebotomine sandfly fauna and natural Leishmania infection rates in a rural area of Cerrado (tropical savannah) in Nova Mutum, State of Mato Grosso in Brazil

Abstract: Introduction: American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) has been reported in every municipality of the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil, but the transmission epidemiology remains poorly understood. Our study was developed in a rural area of the Nova Mutum municipality where four autochthonous cases of ACL were reported in 2009. Our aims were to describe the local phlebotomine sandfl y fauna and to investigate the infection rates and infecting Leishmania species in the captured sandfl ies. Methods: Entomological captu… Show more

“…This species was found with Leishmania sp. (THIES et al, 2013) and is a vector for L. (V.) lindenbergi Silveira, Ishikawa, Souza & Lainson in Brazil (SILVEIRA et al, 2002). Nyssomyia shawi is considered to be a suspected vector of L. (V.) braziliensis in Bolivia (BUSTAMANTE et al, 2012).…”

“…Several reports had described natural infection caused by L. infantum in L. longipalpis (Acardi et al, 2010;Saraiva et al, 2010;Savani et al, 2009) and other Phlebotomine sandflies, including: L. cruzi (Pita-Pereira et al, 2008), Lutzomyia forattinii (Pita-Pereira et al, 2008), Lutzomyia almerioi (Savani et al, 2009), Nyssomyia antunesi (Thies et al, 2013), Nyssomyia intermedia (Saraiva et al, 2010), N. whitmani (Saraiva et al, 2010), M. migonei (Carvalho et al, 2010), Evandromyia cortelezzii (Carvalho et al, 2008) and Evandromyia termitophila (Saraiva et al, 2010). Although M. migonei (Carvalho et al, 2010) and N. whitmani (Saraiva et al, 2010) have already been found with L. infantum infection, this is the first report of L. infantum natural infection for Argentina in these species.…”

“…Considering that in the state of Maranhão, Lu. antunesi is also abundant at ground level (Rebêlo et al ), the vertical transmission of CL can occur, as this vector is incriminated in the transmission of this disease in Brazil (Thies et al ).…”
