Abstract We investigated the occurrence of Sidelphis infantum chagasi in Didelphis albiventris opossums at a wild animal rehabilitation center in the city of Campo Grande, Brazil.

Their ability to survive in human altered habitats, their sizable population and their large distribution makes the outlook for this species stable. Restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis identified the parasites from bone marrow and peripheral blood samples as Leishmania i. Seven of 21 blood marrow samples and 4 of 33 peripheral blood samples were positive for Leishmania spp.

A grassland with scattered trees or scattered clumps of trees, a type of community intermediate between grassland and forest.

The sample size used here was based on the number of opossums that were brought to the wild animal rehabilitation center during the course of the study.
