DERMAL LEISHMANIASIS IN A TEXAS CAT | Academic Article individual record
abstract

Leishmaniasis was diagnosed by demonstrating amastigotes of Leishmania from dermal lesions on the ear of a male long-haired domestic cat from Uvalde, Texas. Leishmania from the cat were propagated in Syrian hamsters, bovine macrophages, and in NNN medium. The organism, in the L. mexicana complex, is apparently the same as that reported from recent human cases in the same area.
