Abstract

TO THE EDITOR: The report of a human cutaneous leishmaniasis case acquired in Clairvaux-les-lacs (1) led us to carry out an investigation with the veterinary clinics in Jura Department, France. Clairvaux-les-lacs is a lakeside resort located in Jura, one of the areas in France with the coldest average temperatures, and is clearly located outside the usual leishmaniasis-endemic area. At least 31 cases of canine leishmaniasis were diagnosed by veterinary clinics in Jura during 2007-2011. Because these dogs were native of or traveled in the leishmaniasis-endemic area along the Mediterranean Sea, all veterinarians considered the infections as acquired outside Jura.
