Description: Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis and its variants were implicated in the epidemic outbreak of mucocutaneous leishmaniasis that occurred in Salta, northwestern Argentina, in 1985. A total of 24 suspect- ed, untreated cases were evaluated clinically and para- sitologically. Four of ®ve stable isolates were consistent with the reference strain of L. (V.) braziliensis as determined by monoclonal antibodies and indirect immuno¯uorescence or radioimmunobinding assays. Zymodeme analysis in agarose gels showed a close relationship with L. (V.) guyanensis and L. (V.) pan- amensis. All zymograms obtained with polyacrylamide gels belonged to the subgenus Viannia; the patterns were di erent from, but very closely related to, the reference strains of L. (V.) braziliensis as determined by dendro- gram analysis. Hamsters infected with two isolates showed a pattern consistent with L. (V.) braziliensis. The pattern of development in the gut of Lutzomyia longipalpis was consistent with members of Viannia.
