From: Resistance of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis and Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensisto nitric oxide correlates with disease severity in Tegumentary Leishmaniasis

Figure 3

Association between NO-susceptibility of the Leishmania isolate and size of the initial cutaneous lesion in CL patients. Patients (n = 14) with cutaneous leishmaniasis were assessed for lesion size at the time of clinical presentation. This is graphed with the correlating 4 NO-resistant Leishmania ( 3 L (L.) amazonensis and 1 L. (V.) braziliensisor 10 NO-susceptible Leishmania (2 L (L.) amazonensis and 8 L (V.) brazilienis ), (p = 0.01, Mann-Whitey nonparametric test).
