Leishmanial forms of Leishmania donovani complex (visceral leishmaniasis) phagocytosed by a macrophage:In leishmaniasis, only the leishmanial form is present in disease. Phlebotomus (sandfly) is the vector for the disease. Visceral leishmaniasis is called kala azar and is characterized by massive splenomegaly and eosinophilia. Macrophages contain the leishmanial forms, which are very similar in appearance to the yeast forms of Histoplasmaand the Donovan bodies in granuloma inguinale.
