A spotlight survey for new cases of human ZCL among out-patients with skin complaints revealed sixteen out of 100 (16\%) individuals examined. But, none ZCL infection was found among 50 normal individuals. The typing of three human isolates proved to be Leishmania major Zymodeme London 70. Trapping and examination of the rodent reservoirs and sand-fly vector(s) were carried out as well, but will be published later on.
