We compared xenodiagnosis with quantitative polymerase chain reaction in skin biopsies from 3 patients with maculopapular or nodular post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL). All patients infected sand flies. Parasite loads in skin varied from 1428 to 63 058 parasites per microgram. PKDL detection and treatment are important missing components of the kala-azar elimination program.doi:10.1093/cid/cix245 pmid:28520851 pmcid:PMC5848257 fatcat:kg7takb4zjhwjaf2jwrbggnzie
