Title: Leishmaniasis in Yemeni children: seroepidemiological study in Taiz and Lahj Governorates
Author: Abd Al-Warith, Yassin; Mukhtar, Moawia M.
Abstract: Leishmaniasis is a complex group of parasitic disease which has various forms of clinical pictures, prognosis, names, causative species, transmission vectors, and sequences of infection, and management schemes. Diversity of clinical presentation of leishmaniasis depends on geographical region, type of infecting parasite species, and immune response of the host. Although Leishmaniasis is considered endemic in Yemen, and several studies have been conducted since seventieth of the last century, however until now leishmaniasis has not been an officially reported disease as well as the actual prevalence in the general population is not known.
