Resumen

FLORES CH, María Delmans et al. Sub-clinical infections by visceral leishmaniasis in Caranavi district. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2004, vol.75, n.3, pp.285-293. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062004000300015.

In 1999, in the .Hospital del Niño.. a new case of visceral leishmaniasis was identified in a 2 years old child from Taipiplaya in the Caranavi district. For this reason, a visceral leishmaniasis evaluation using serological and molecular tests was realized on 122 healthy people and also on one leishmania cutanea infected person. Leishmania spp was present in 32,3 % of the studied people and 14,4 % had an anti-rk39 antibody, attesting the existence of Leishmania chagasi responsible for visceral leishmaniasis. The possibility of mixed infections with other Leishmania species as well as mixed infections Leishmania spp and Trypanosama cruzi, responsible for chagas disease should not be discarded

Palabras clave : infection asympomatic due to L. chagasi.
