Resumen

Leishmaniasis is one of the world, neglected tropical diseases (NTD), recently, celebrated its day (January 30, 2020). Infection due to Leishmania is a major public health problem in many tropical countries; due to its high incidence and wide geographical distribution [1]. Both domestic and wild animals may serve as host reservoirs of Leishmania spp [2]. The Role of dogs in the zoonotic cycle of Leishmania spp, especially in urban and peri-urban areas, has long been understood. Nevertheless, recent studies have detected Leishmania infections in domestic cats.
