Accepted: 4 September Abstract Background: Forty-four strains isolated from a cohort of cutaneous leishmaniasis CL patients who did or did not respond to one course of treatment with meglumine antimoniate were investigated to explore genetic polymorphisms in parasite kinetoplast DNA minicircles. Leishmania Viannia braziliensis strains isolated from responder R and non-responder NR patients who acquired infection in Rio de Janeiro or in other Brazilian states were studied using low-stringency single-specific primer polymerase chain reaction LSSP-PCR to identify genetic polymorphisms. Results: Polymorphisms were observed in parasites recovered from patient lesions. No association was found between a specific genotype and R or NR patients. Phenetic analysis grouped the genotypes into three main clusters, with similarity indices varying from 0.
Statistical analysis Phlebotomine sand flies present in the four localities and the two ecosystems, were correlated with tree species and their distinct morphologies, illustrating the associations for each habitat that exhibited a typical vegetation.
The relationship with the morphological and physical characteristics of the plant species was evaluated and compared with the richness and relative abundance of phlebotomine sand fly species identified, by means of multiple discriminant correspondence analysis using the XLSTAT 3.
Finally, data derived from the characterization of physicochemical parameters of the breeding sites in dry and humid forest ecosystems were initially analyzed with the Mann—Whitney test, using the SPSS The measurements of physical and chemical parameters can be ordered on an ordinal scale, so this test is suitable for data that are not normally distributed and are acceptable for independent samples when considering each location as a particular habitat type.
Additionally, the physical and chemical parameters compared to the richness and relative abundance of species was evaluated by multiple discriminative correspondence analysis, using the XLSTAT 3. Additionally, recent work has shown the suitability of discriminative methods for recognition of large numbers of categories. Results Natural breeding sites A total of 38 Direct examination allowed recovery of immatures and eight exuviae of Phlebotomine sand flies The leaf litter, trunk tree and a tree hole in Rio Claro specifically also have high produtivity, because the number of sites analyzed is lower, but detection results as positive microhabitat are important.
Open image in new window Figure 2 Positive breeding sites of phlebotomine sand flies in four areas of Leishmania transmission in Colombia. Base of tree, B. Bark of tree, C. The typical ulcer is painless, of varied size, has delimited and raised edges of granular bottom. These lesions may regress spontaneously after some time Costa et al.
The scar, in general, has a smooth, thin, shiny and hypopigmented appearance Figure 1A Costa et al. Cases of reactivation of the lesions can be seen in some patients considered clinically cured Figure 1B. It initially presents an ulcer similar to the localized cutaneous form and evolves with the appearance of several polymorphic papules, that may have acneiform, nodular, ulcerated, verrucous and plaque appearance.
Patients affected by the diffuse form have no cellular immune response to Leishmania spp. Clinical characteristics of lesions and the Leishmania species involved in main clinical forms of TL. Tegumentary leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania braziliensis.
A Atrophic scar post a successful treatment; B lesion reactivation post treatment. Photos kindly provided by Dr. Other less common clinical presentations are described. As such, we can cite the a so-called leishmaniasis recidiva cutis LRC , which consists of repeated reactivation of lesions around or within the scar of the classic cutaneous form of leishmaniasis Bittencourt et al.
The genesis of these different clinical presentations, ranging from single cutaneous lesions with self-limited evolution and tendency to spontaneous healing, to widespread forms that often evolve with difficult treatment and control, has been related to different factors such as parasite species, patient nutrition and health status, number and localization of lesions, as well as an individual host cellular immune response Silveira et al.
For example, some authors have shown that American tegumentary leishmaniasis ATL lesions located in the lower limbs need more time to heal Oliveira-Neto et al. It has also been described that early treatment of ATL does not prevent ulcer development Machado et al. In this context, it has recently been verified that short evolution time and Montenegro skin test MST with low positivity were associated with cases of therapeutic failure Antonio et al.
In Brazil, the most common treatment is an intramuscular or intravenous injection of pentavalent antimonials Brazil, In other world regions, amphotericin B, among other possibilities, is also designed to treat leishmaniasis Tuon et al. However, in addition to the well documented potential harmful toxicity of all drugs already described, increased information about resistance to the first and second choice drugs has highlighted the need for new drugs to treat leishmaniasis.
But, until now it has not been possible to accomplish a new treatment with less toxicity and at least the same efficacy of the old available drugs. It is important to note that, in parallel to treatment failure, the literature has also evidenced the possibility of an early spontaneous healing without treatment Oliveira-Ribeiro et al. In this context, understanding why leishmaniasis is becoming difficult to treat and control can help to develop new approaches to improve the healing of this infection.
Unfortunately, despite an impressive amount of information, a conclusive understanding is still under construction. Our objective is to introduce and discuss some of the information already published regarding the factors that could influence the treatment response in humans with TL. Table 2 summarizes some findings regarding treatment response. Summary of the aspects involved in human TL treatment.
The Healing Process in TL The presence of a balanced immune response mainly produced by cellular immunity is pointed out as necessary to control parasites and promote wound healing. Due to difficulties in obtaining tissue smears, many studies have been focused on analyzing the peripheral blood immune response.
It is important to note that relevant information has been described correlating the results of the evolution and severity of the lesions, as well as in the therapeutic response.
Despite this, in the last years various results were obtained by the evaluation of tissue damages and the organization and activity of the inflammatory process, which brought valuable information. The involvement of the in situ inflammatory response in the formation and maintenance of the lesions has previously been demonstrated in the murine model. In this context, Belkaid et al. In addition, in patients, the balance between types 1 and 2 responses has been identified as a determinant in the evolution of TL to self-limited or severe forms Awasthi et al.
It is known that an exaggerated Th1 response can lead to tissue damage and has been associated with the immunopathogenesis of mucosal lesions Ribeiro-de-Jesus et al. A summary of the main immunological features already described in the tegumentary leishmaniasis is represented in Figure 2. Summary of the main immunological features described in mucosal lesions, localized cutaneous leishmaniasis and skin scars of tegumentary leishmaniasis.
Predominant cell subtypes were indicated for each clinical form. The blue squares represent the intensity of the parameters indicated in the figure. Concerning the tissue microenvironment, it has also been shown that ATL lesions are characterized by a chronic granulomatous inflammatory reaction, with intense lymphoplasmacytic infiltration Quintella et al.
Lymphocytes, macrophages and neutrophils predominate in the lesions of typical LCL, defined as those with the presence of ulcers with infiltrated borders and granular bottoms Schubach et al. Morgado et al. These changes could be linked to decreased parasite load Morgado et al. On the other hand, the imbalanced response can both decrease and exacerbate type 1 response that can elicit tissue damage making difficult to control TL.
In this context, Maspi et al. This uncontrolled response could be responsible for the significant tissue damage, explaining the appearance of extensive, destructive, and difficult-to-treat lesions.
The detailing of the immune response involved in the formation of TL lesions has been the subject of numerous revisions, but some details are important for understanding the mechanism of cure or therapeutic failure.
In this context, other cells participate in the inflammatory process and may influence the progression of TL lesions and some have been implicated as involved in both, the control and the pathogenesis of the infection.
Neutrophils have also been involved in the decrease in parasite load or in the amplification of macrophage infection Tacchini-Cottier et al. In this context, our group identified the presence of neutrophils in lesions with different time of evolution Morgado et al. It was also verified that Leishmania spp. Other studies have shown the influence of different cytokines such as IL and enzymes such as arginase in the pathogenesis of TL Soong et al.
Although in part these immunological mechanisms together can reduce the local parasite load, Leishmania is able to escape from immune effectors then persisting in the lesion site Makala et al. For example, Leishmania spp. Skin inflammation also plays an important role during the healing of ATL and parasite antigens in ATL scars have already been reported Schubach et al.
In situ evaluation of LCL scars demonstrated that after 1 year from healing, the scars presented inflammatory nests surrounded by scar tissue as well as close to vessels and cutaneous glands. Inflammatory areas presented similar organization than that observed in active lesions from the same patient, including number and distribution of lymphocytes and macrophages, despite a reduction in the inflammatory areas.
When scars were examined after 3 year evolution, it was still possible to verify that the inflammatory foci were still present and showing signs of inflammatory activity, including the detection of parasites, but presenting lower cellularity as compared with 1 year scars Morgado et al. These results pointed out that the cellular composition of the skin inflammatory reaction changes steadily even after wound healing and, along with the presence of parasites suggests a dynamic balance between parasite multiplication and immune response that could be disrupted in some situations.
Thus, individuals with persistent parasites may present disease recurrences Saravia et al. In addition, the parasitic persistence may contribute to the continuous immune system stimulation, maintaining a pool of Leishmania -specific effector cells which can be detected in peripheral blood of healed patients Gaafar et al.
An estimated 1. In Turkey, around 2, autochthonous cases of CL are reported each year.
Owing to the civil war in Syria, Turkey received around 3 million refugees, and they are located mainly at either camps or homes in the south or southeastern part of Turkey. An epidemiological study conducted in Turkey from to with patients positive for leishmaniasis using real-time and semi-nested polymerase chain reactions PCRs revealed that Khezzani and Bouchemal, in Algeria, reported 4, confirmed cases of CL in a period of 13 years: the disease affected all municipalities and all age groups The most affected individuals were 10 to 19 years old In Iran, Holakouie-Naieni et al.
VL, also known as kala-azar, is a clinical form endemic in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. In this respect, in Nepal, approximately 5. Moreover, from to , a total of 23, cases, including deaths, were reported. In Latin America, it is estimated that around 60, new cases including all types occur each year.
