Abstract
Leishmania stocks isolated from cutaneous lesions in Lebanon were characterized by PCR methods. The stocks were typed as putative L. (L.) archibaldi (gp63 PCR-RFLP), belonging to 2 different genotypes (PCR-based schizodeme analysis). This constitutes the first report on the presence of L. (L.) archibaldi in the Middle East.
