Abstract

Localized cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania (Leishmania) mexicana is endemic in the Yucatán peninsula, Mexico. Lutzomyia olmeca olmeca and Lutzomyia cruciata have been found infected by flagellates. This represents the first report on the detection and identification of Leishmania to the genus and subgenus levels in both sand fly species using the polymerase chain reaction.
