MARZOCHI, Mauro Célio de A. et al. Leishmaniose visceral canina no Rio de Janeiro - Brasil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1985, vol.1, n.4, pp. 432-446. ISSN 1678-4464.

Based on the recent and most southernly endemic focus of visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil, associated with the presence of Lutzomyia longipalpis and canine infection, the authors discuss the importance of the household dog as a natural reservoir host of infection and also summarise the epidemiological, clinic, parasitological and therapeutical findings of the canine disease in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
