It affects hot Mediterranean countries such as Malta, Spain and some parts of Italy. It can affect humans as well as dogs. If you have any information about the prevention of cure of Leishmania please do share it here. Thanks in advance.

Doesn't sound to pretty to have this so it is good to prevent it all you can. http://wzus.ask.com/r?t=p&d=us&s=a&c=a&l=dir&o=ffx&ld=3509&sv=0a300527&ip=45b02091&id=ABF199934CBDB587E9A2A41B5A2F411C&q=What+is+Leishmania&p=1&qs=145&ac=3&g=47c1nHebU0%kDt&en=te&io=0&ep=&eo=&b=a003&bc=&br=&tp=d&ec=1&pt=Division%20of%20Parasitic%20Diseases%20-%20Leishmania%20Infection%20%20Fact%20Sheet&ex=tsrc%3Dlxlx&url=&u=http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dpd/parasites/leishmania/factsht_leishmania.htm

I see that it is supposed to come from sand flies and is quite an old problem. See here... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leishmania This is what I found by searching some more about symptoms, cause, and treatments... http://www.righthealth.com/Health/Leishmaniosis-Diseases__and_Causes-Leishmaniasis-s
