Abstract : In Uzbekistan spontaneous leishmaniasis in dogs can run as a localized process similar to cutaneous leishmaniasis in man or as a generalized process. Skin lesions represent the primary manifestations of spontaneous disease in dogs in both clinical forms of leishmaniasis. In the cutaneous form these lesions remain localized and either end in complete healing or run a course of a chronic intermittent cutaneous process. In visceral leishmaniasis skin lesions are followed by generalization of the process, the skin lesions either persisting or disappearing. In different foci one or the other form of the disease may be prevalent. Thus, in Samarkand the generalized form is more common, and in Bukhare the cutaneous form. (Author)
