Abstract

Leishmaniasis is a zoonotic parasitic disease that affects both humans and animals. Canines are considered the main reservoirs of the disease, while cats can present as secondary reservoirs, altering the epidemiological cycle of the disease. The present work describes the first case of feline foot hyperkeratosis in Asunción-Paraguay associated with leishmaniasis, determined by cytological diagnosis, with a favorable response to treatment and total resolution of the clinical symptoms.
