BARBOSA-SANTOS, E. G. O. et al. Leishmaniasis dissemineted by Leishmania braziliensis in a mare (Equus cabalus) immunotherapy and chemotherapy assays. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1994, vol.89, n.2, pp. 217-220. ISSN 0074-0276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02761994000200018.
Cutaneous disseminated lesions caused by Leishmania sp. were found in a pregnant mare (Equus cabalus) from a rural city in the State of rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Before delivering, treatment was undertaken by immunotherapy followed by chemotherapy. Histopatology and serology were performed during treatment, as well as the biochemical characterization of the parasite (L. braziliensis) that was isolated from one of the lesions.
