Cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya: a study of the Yafran area
AbstractWe studied 445 cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Yafran area during the period February 1991 to December 1992. The highest incidence rates were recorded at the end of the transmission seasons in two peaks, one in November 1991 and the second in December 1992. The ratio of infected males to females was 1.85:1.00. The highest rate of infection was found among people 11-20 years of age. This indicates that the disease is not new in the Yafran area
