Urban distribution of Phlebotominae in a cutaneous leishmaniasis focus, Argentina
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz
Urbanization and vector domestication are currently proposed as factors that contributed to the recent increase of American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL). Is likely also urban transmission? Oran is the main city in the Argentinean hyper-endemic area of ACL, and human cases in urban residences are usually reported. In order to assess the spatial distribution of risk, phlebotomine traps were located in different environments of Oran. A total of 7,787 sand flies were captured: Lutzomyia neivaidoi:10.1590/s0074-02762008005000016 pmid:18545855 fatcat:jxowxuzmifajplgsusemxh4344
