bite of female phlebotomine sandfly. This may be presented in patients in the form of either visceral
leishmaniasis or post kala-azar or dermal leishmaniasis or cutaneous or mucocutaneous. More than 20
species of Leishmania are responsible for causing infections in humans. Unfortunately, the affected
regions are often remote and unstable, with limited resources for targeting this deadly disease. The most
effective diagnostic tests for leishmaniasis are invasive, potentially dangerous and samples are required
from spleen, lymph nodes or bone marrow. Additionally, such diagnostic tests are not readily available in
resource-poor and endemic areas. Different treatment options are available for treatment of this disease,
with varying effectiveness and adverse effects. The paper herein highlights the problem of leishmaniasis
along with diagnostic options available, currently used drugs and different agents in the stage of preclinical
and clinical development.
