Há relatos em Minas Gerais desde 1940, sendo Montes Claros, atualmente um dos municípios de residência da doen a, devido principalmente pelas parcas condi es de vida da maioria da popula o e pelas suas características climáticas. Com o objetivo de avaliar os aspectosepidemiológicos da leishmaniose em Montes Claros, foi feito um levantamento dos casos da doen a no período de 2001 a 2007. Utilizaram-se dados referentes aos casos da leishmaniosevisceral notificados no SINAN/SMS de Montes Claros durante esse período. Esta protozoose afetou principalmente faixas etárias compreendidas entre 1 a 4 anos e acima de 30 anos em ambos os sexos, sobretudo o sexo masculino.

There are reports in Minas Gerais since 1940, and Montes Claros, currently is the city that occur this disease, mainly because the down living conditions of the majority of the population and its climatic features. The objective was to evaluate the epidemiological aspects of leishmaniasis in Montes Claros, was made a survey of cases of the disease in the period of 2001 to 2007. We used data on reported cases of visceral leishmaniasis in SINAN / SMS from Montes Claros during this period. This protozoiasis affect mainly ages ranging from 1 to 4 years and above 30 years for both sexes, especially males.

Abstract: visceral leishmaniasis in brazil was initially associated with rural areas. however, due to several environmental modifications such as deforestation, urbanization and intense migratory processes, there has been an expansion of endemic areas, leading to urbanization of the disease, mainly in the central and northeastern regions of brazil. in the municipality of montes claros, located in the north of the state of minas gerais, an epidemiological survey on vl was carried out. a canine serological inquiry was carried out in 2002 and an entomological survey, using luminous cdc traps, was performed from september 2002 to august 2003. canine vl prevalence showed an average infection rate of approximately 5%. an estimated 16 species comprised the phlebotomine sand fly fauna, based on a total of 1043 specimens. the predominant species was lutzomyia longipalpis with a rate of 74%, suggesting its participation in the transmission of vl in the municipality of montes claros.

Abstract: introduction: visceral leishmaniasis (vl) is an expanding zoonosis in brazil and is becoming urbanized in several brazilian regions. this study aims to describe the epidemiological features of human and canine vl in the municipality of montes claros, state of minas gerais, by focusing on their spatial distribution. methods: data concerning human cases and reactive dogs for vl from 2007 to 2009 were obtained from the information system for disease notification (sinan) and from reports of the local centro de controle de zoonoses (ccz), respectively. the addresses of human and canine cases have been georeferenced and localized in thematic maps, allowing their spatial visualization as well as the identification of areas at risk of vl transmission. results: ninety-five cases of human vl were reported in the period. the 0-9-year-old age group (48.4%) was the most affected, within which the majority consisted of male patients (64%). of the samples collected for the canine serological survey, 2,919 (6.3%) were reactive to vl. the spatial localization of these cases shows that the disease was scattered in the urban area of the municipality. areas showing a higher dissemination risk were concentrated in the central, northwestern, and southern regions of the city. conclusions: identifying the areas most at risk in urban montes claros may help guide actions toward local epidemiological vigilance and control.

Abstract: A leishmaniose visceral no Brasil estava inicialmente associada a áreas rurais, mas devido às diversas altera es no ambiente como, desmatamentos, urbaniza o e intenso processo migratório, ocorreu a expans o das áreas endêmicas, levando à urbaniza o da doen a, principalmente nas regi es Sudeste e Centro Oeste do país. No município de Montes Claros, situado ao norte de Minas Gerais, foi feito um estudo para verifica o da situa o da LV. No ano de 2002 foi realizado inquérito sorológico canino e no período de setembro de 2002 a agosto de 2003 foi feito levantamento entomológico, utilizando armadilhas luminosas de CDC. A prevalência da LV canina apresentou taxa média de infec o em torno de 5%. A fauna de flebotomíneos estimada foi de 16 espécies, totalizando 1043 exemplares. Lutzomyia longipalpis foi a espécie predominante com 74%, o que sugere a sua participa o na transmiss o de LV em Montes Claros.

Abstract: the aim of the present study was to measure the proportion of adolescent pregnancies in montes claros, minas gerais, brazil. from a total of 7,672 live births in 2001, the estimated proportion of births by adolescent mothers was 21.5%. in addition to the limited presence of adequate frequency in prenatal visits, especially in the 10-14-year bracket (12.0%), the study identified an increase in the number of complications, inversely related to age, and these differences were significant in relation to prematurity and low birth weight, which did not occur with the 5-minute apgar score. confirming the hypothesis of greater frequency of these complications when the number of prenatal visits was inadequate, the outcomes also signal an age-associated risk, particularly in early adolescence (10-14 years). these results, together with the data on an increase in adolescent pregnancy in the region from 1997 to 2001, point to teenage pregnancy as a public health problem.

Abstract: in the present paper, we evaluate the relationship between climate variables and population density of lutzomyia longipalpis in montes claros, an area of active transmission of american visceral leishmaniasis (avl) in brazil. entomological captures were performed in 10 selected districts of the city, between september 2002-august 2003. a total of 773 specimens of l. longipalpiswere captured in the period and the population density could be associated with local climate variables (cumulative rainfall, average temperature and relative humidity) through a mathematical linear model with a determination coefficient (rsqr) of 0.752. although based on an oversimplified statistical analysis, as far as the vector is concerned, this approach showed to be potentially useful as a starting point to guide control measures for avl in montes claros.
