Abstract

Canine, human visceral (VL) and human cutaneous (CL) leishmaniases all occur widely on the mainland of Greece and many of the Greek islands. Their quite extensive history has been reviewed briefly by Tzamouranis et al. (1984) and Garifallou et al. (1984). Human cases are usually infants and young children. More dogs have been found infected than people and they are the main source of human infection (Papantonakis, 1935; Adler, 1936, 1964).
