Abstract

Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is known as tropical and subtropical neglected vector-borne disease in the Old World. Despite the fact that the Eastern Mediterranean Region and Tigris Basin are an endemic area of CL, unfortunately their bio-climatic and environmental variables are relatively poorly understood.
