Abstract

The authors present a novel case of imported canine leishmaniosis in Hungary. Dermatitis accompanied by pruritus, lymphadenopathy and nephropathy manifested on a two years old male labrador succeeding by months its return from years long residence in Greece. Thorough clinical and laboratory investigations, however remained inconclusive, only a specific molecular diagnostic method gave evidence of the Leishmania infantum infection of the dog. The dog of deteriorated condition was euthanized and post mortem pathological, parasitological and molecular examinations proved the infection with the Leishmania undoubtedly. In relation to this recent case the authors give an explanation to the epidemiological situation in Hungary, a country that is, despite the fact that autochthonous canine leishmaniosis has been already described, is thought to be non-endemic for that parasitosis. However imported cases of canine leishmaniosis represent a major epidemiological risk because the occurrence of phlebotomine sandflies, vectors of Leishmania infantum have already been demonstrated in some regions of Hungary.
