The protozoal organism Leishmania infantum is endemic in the Mediterranean region and transmitted by female sandflies. Development of disease depends on the host’s immune status, leading to incubation periods of month to years in certain patients. Leishmaniasis is a chronic disease with lymphadenopathy, involvement of the gastrointestinal tract (i.e. diarrhea, vomitus), and cutaneous lesions. Renal failure may develop in later stages of the disease and often leads to complications. As eradication of parasites is not possible, early detection of disease and lifelong treatment of the patient are required. scil v-Leishmania detects antibodies against Leishmania organism and facilitates rapid identification of infected patients.
