Abstract

A sixth autochthonous case of visceral leishmaniasis is reported in Bolivia. It is also the fourth case detected in the Yungas Valley (Department of La Paz) confirming the long-term existence of the disease in this area where cases of canine leishmaniasis and natural infestation of the phlebotomine sandfly, Lutzomyia longipalpis, were previously reported.
