espundia

American LEISHMANIASIS. This disease is caused by the single-celled parasite Leishmania braziliensis and is spread by sandfly bites. It occurs in south Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay and Peru, causing disfiguring skin ulcers of the face and tissue destruction that extends into the cavities of the nose and mouth. It often persists for years and, if neglected, may lead to death from overwhelming secondary infection.
