The results reveal that these Lebanese isolates are all very similar despite variable clinical presentations of the patients and differences in geographic origin. is the dominant species present in the skin lesions observed; thus, clinical manifestations and/or geographic distribution cannot be used as reliable criteria for identifying parasites from this geographic area. Enzyme data should be combined with these parameters before definitive identification can be made.
