American cutaneous leishmaniasis in a northeast Brazilian city: clinical and epidemiological features.

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION:This study characterized the clinico-epidemiological profile of American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) cases in Barbalha, Ceará State, Brazil. METHODS:Medical records of 363 patients visiting Federal University of Cariri between 2009 and 2014 were analyzed. RESULTS:ACL was more prevalent in men with low education level from rural zones. The main presentation was a single ulcer, mainly in the lower limbs, and 49.8% also presented lymphadenomegaly. The annual incidence ranged from 2.83 to 22.60 per 10,000 inhabitants. CONCLUSIONS:The rates observed in this study indicate the importance of additional research to contribute to the control of this endemic disease.
