dna sequencing confirms pcr-rflp identification of wild caught larroussius sand flies from crete and cyprus.many phlebotomine sand fly species (diptera, psychodidae) are vectors of the protozoan parasite leishmania causing a group of diseases called the leishmaniases. the subgenus larroussius includes sand fly vectors found in south east mediterranean basin responsible for visceral (vl) and cutaneous human leishmaniasis (cl). it is important to monitor these medically important insects in order to safely predict possible leishmania transmission cycles. leishmania infantum is endemic in the islands of ...201627609635
the paraphyletic composition of leishmania donovani zymodeme mon-37 revealed by multilocus microsatellite typing.multilocus microsatellite typing (mlmt) was employed to compare strains of leishmania donovani belonging to the mon-37 zymodeme (mon-37 strains) from cyprus and israel to mon-37 strains from the indian subcontinent, the middle east, china and east africa as well as strains of other zymodemes. the mlmt data were processed with a distance-based method for construction of phylogenetic trees, factorial correspondence analysis and a bayesian model-based clustering algorithm. all three approaches assi ...200919376262
hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis associated with epstein barr virus and leishmania donovani coinfection in a child from cyprus.we present a case of a 9-month-old girl from cyprus with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis associated with epstein barr virus and leishmania donovani coinfection. treatment with liposomal amphotericin b resulted in a dramatic resolution of clinical and laboratory abnormalities. to our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a coinfection-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and the first clinical report of visceral leishmaniasis infection in europe by l. donovani.200818776766

multilocus microsatellite typing (mlmt) of strains from turkey and cyprus reveals a novel monophyletic l. donovani sensu lato group.new foci of human cl caused by strains of the leishmania donovani (l. donovani) complex have been recently described in cyprus and the çukurova region in turkey (l. infantum) situated 150 km north of cyprus. cypriot strains were typed by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (mlee) using the montpellier (mon) system as l. donovani zymodeme mon-37. however, multilocus microsatellite typing (mlmt) has shown that this zymodeme is paraphyletic; composed of distantly related genetic subgroups of differen ...201222348162
[A woman with a persisting ulcer on the chin].A 62-year-old woman presented with an ulcerative lesion on the chin. She had not visited tropical regions, but she had been in Cyprus. A skin biopsy revealed coccoid micro-organisms resembling Leishmania. Subsequently a PCR was performed which showed Leishmania donovani and Leishmania infantum complex and the diagnose 'cutaneous leishmaniasis' was confirmed.201122129807

cutaneous leishmaniasis after travel to cyprus and successful treatment with miltefosine.a patient presenting with an atypical manifestation of cutaneous leishmaniasis after travel to cyprus was successfully treated with miltefosine. the k26 typing revealed a hitherto undescribed strain of the leishmania donovani/infantum complex as the causing agent.201121460010
a cluster of four cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis by leishmania donovani in cyprus: a case series.leishmaniasis is endemic in more than 95 countries and is the only tropical/subtropical vector-borne disease that has been endemic in southern europe for decades. to the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of cutaneous leishmaniasis by leishmania donovani in a child and the first cluster with adult cases reported in europe.201425343876
