    Leishmania Leishmania Presentation Transcript

    • Leishmaniasis Leishmania donovani (complex) (VL) Leishmania tropica (CL) Leishmania major (CL) Leishmania aethiopica (CL) Leishmania mexicana (Complex) (CL) Leishmania brazilliensis (complex) (MCL) Leishmania peruriana
    • The Parasite • Phylum Sarcomastigophora • Order Kinetoplastida • Family Trypanosomatidae • Genus Leishmania
    • Morphology Digenetic Life Cycle • Promasitogte • Insect • Motile • Midgut • Amastigote • Mammalian stage • Non-motile • Intracellular
    • Morphology • Promastigote • Amastigote Flagella Kinetoplast Golgi Nucleus Cytoskeleton
    • Promastigote
    • • Amastigotes (*) of Leishmania donovani in the cells of a spleen. The individual amastigotes measure approximately 1 µm in diameter.
    • Amastigote
    • • Amastigotes of Leishmania in a macrophage from a lymph node of a dog.
    • • Leishmania (LeishmanDonovan or LD bodies). Lying in macrophage cells from liver. Giemsa. ×12000. Enlarged by 9.6.
    • • A macrophage filled with Leishmania amastigotes. 1
    • Life cycle • The organism is transmitted by the bite of several species of blood-feeding sand flies (Phlebotomus) which carries the promastigote in the anterior gut and pharynx. It gains access to mononuclear phagocytes where it transform into amastogotes and divides until the infected cell ruptures. The released organisms infect other cells. The sandfly acquires the organisms during the blood meal, the amastigotes transform into flagellate promastigotes and multiply in the gut until the anterior gut and pharynx are packed. Dogs and rodents are common reservoirs. 1
