Abstract

[Extract]

• With the increase of tourism to tropical destinations, the need for travel health advice has increased

• American Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (ACL) is rarely included in this advice

• Numerous cases of tourists with ACL (L. braziliensis) have been described (eg. Melby '92, Caumes '95)

• Lack of education for travellers has been pointed out (eg. Herwald '93)
