Abstract Two polypeptide fractions of 72-75 kD were detected in the urine of 14 of 15 patients with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) and another fraction of 123 kD was found in 10 of the 15 patients by using a Western blot technique. None of these fractions was detected in the urine of 20 controls. These results suggest that antigen detection in urine could be a powerful, noninvasive method for VL diagnosis.
