The subject of this slim volume, written in Spanish, is nonvisceralizing leishmaniasis, as seen in the Americas. Over half of the pages are devoted to tables, maps, and photographs, including 36 excellent black and white photographs of cutaneous and mucocutaneous disease. The references are remarkably comprehensive and current and include a number of important but infrequently cited papers from the Latin American literature.
Most reviews of this subject are marred by the confusion over nomenclature of morphologically identical Leishmania that causes diverse pathology in different geographic areas and by the tendency to generalize from an extensive but geographically limited experience.
