Sandfly fever virus is transmitted through the bite of an infected phlebotomine
sandfly (genus Phlebotomus) shown in the Figure.
Biology of Phlebotomine
sand flies as vectors of disease agents.
Temperature-derived potential for the establishment of phlebotomine
sandflies and visceral leishmaniasis in Germany.
Leishmaniasis is a worldwide zoonotic disease, transmitted by phlebotomine
species, causing tegumental and visceral injuries.
Leishmaniasis disease is transfer by protozoan affected female phlebotomine
chagasi), which is transmitted principally by the phlebotomine
species Lutzomyia longipalpis.
Study on phlebotomine
sand flies was carried out in four tehsils of Upper and Lower Dir.
1) The disease is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected female phlebotomine
Leishmania organisms are intracellular protozoan parasites that are transmitted to a mammalian host by the bite of the female phlebotomine
As highlighted by Alexander and Malori (26), their small size, silent flight and the fact that they do not hover, make it difficult for people to identify a vector, even in endemic areas, therefore most of the population may be largely unaware of the presence of phlebotomine
sandflies (Diptera: Psychodidade) and their role in the epidemiology of the disease.
