Amplification profile in RT-PCR of the Giemsa slide of the bone marrow smear, the negative blood slide and the negative tissue slide, the amplification of the Leishmania kinetoplast DNA is labeled in orange and the amplification of the DNA of the Internal Positive Control (IPC) is labeled in Grey. The amplification of the kinetoplast DNA of Leishmania from the Giemsa slide of the bone marrow smear is indicated by red vertical dotted line and occurred at 28 CTs which corresponds to the presence of 1.8 parasites on the slide. The amplification of the kinetoplast DNA of Leishmania from the five positive points of the range are indicated by blue vertical dotted lines. Typical amastigote form of Leishmania sp (2–3 mm in diameter) seen in smear bone marrow shown in insert squares at the left side of the figure. The nucleus and kinetoplast are in red arrow. Staining May Grunwald Giemsa (MGG) x1000. *Parasite
