Medindia on Leishmaniasis

Leishmaniasis is a neglected disease and known for centuries, Indian physicians applied the Sanskrit term kala azar (meaning "black fever") to an ancient disease that later was known as visceral leishmaniasis. It is also mentioned in texts of the 15th and 16th centuries during the Spanish colonization. It was also called "valley sickness" or "Andean sickness".Disfigurements of the nose and mouth led to it being called "white leprosy".

In 1901, Leishman identified certain organisms in smears taken from the spleen of a patient who had died from "dum-dum fever". At the time "Dum-dum", a town not far from Calcutta, was considered to be particularly unhealthy.

Trypanosoma cruzi - is associated with neurological disorders and also called Chagas disease and found in central and South America
