It sometimes is difficult to diagnose leishmaniasis in tissue sections or in smears, particularly in unusual sites or if few parasites are present in the lesion. Leishmania species must be differentiated morphologically from a variety of other microorganisms, including Toxoplasma gondii, Histoplasma capsulatum, Trypanosoma cruzi, and Penicillium marneffei. We tested ...
