The detection of Leishmania in naturally infected rodents in endemic areas is of fundamental importance for defining these rodents as possible reservoir hosts of infection. The use of polymerase chain reaction in conjunction with molecular hybridization has provided important results that could lead to a better understanding of the natural history of leishmaniasis.
