Syrian Refugees Bringing Flesh-Eating Disease into U.S.

Posted December 21, 2015 1:27 am by

Health agencies confirmed that Syrian refugees have transported leishmaniasis to Lebanon and Turkey, where it has been difficult to manage and treat.

Compounding the problem, ​patients can be infected with ​ the parasitic disease ​without showing symptoms for weeks, months, or even years, ​ and ​an asymptomatic patient most likely doesn’t know that he or she is a carrier.

​​This means the health screening process for refugees could miss the disease entirely​.
