Leishmania IgG/IgM Rapid Test

Visceral leishmaniasis, or Kala-azar, is a disseminated infection caused by several subspecies of the L. donovani. The disease is estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO) to affect approximately 12 million people in 88 countries. It is transmitted to humans by bites of the Phlebotomus sandflies, which acquire infection from feeding on infected animals. Though it is a disease found in poor countries, in Southern Europe, it has become the leading opportunistic infection in AIDS patients.
