Leishmania mexicana


Leishmania mexicana
a species, of the subgenus Leishmania, found in Central America and southern North America, causing the form of New World cutaneous leishmaniasis called chiclero ulcer and also occasionally causing diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis. It is transmitted by Lutzomyia olmeca. L. mexicana is considered by some authorities to be a complex including also the species L. pifanoi; others consider the two species to be synonymous.
