Abstract: During the 20th century, the geographical distribution of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in Brazil was limited to rural areas. The growth of urban centers, leading to environmental and population problems, allowed the disease expansion, as well as Canine Visceral Leishmaniasis (CVL) establishment in some urban areas. In urban areas, dog is considered the main reservoir of Leishmania and is reputed as the source of parasite infection to Lutzomyia longipalpis, the vector of CVL in Brazil. The present study aimed to identify the prevalence of CVL, map and analyze the distribution of infected dogs, as well as correlating CVL prevalence with the population density of captured L. longipalpis in the municipality of Camaçari, an endemic area of VL in Bahia, Brazil.
