Leishmaniasis - Mexico

In the last five years, the GeoSentinel network treated 23 patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis acquired in Mexico, although three of these patients had also visited other Central American countries. It should be noted that nine of these 23 patients were diagnosed in the last 12 months. This rebound is related to an increase in cases in the region. So far in 2023, the cumulative number of cases for the year in Mexico has further increased to 1,128 (958 cases in men). Once again, Quintana Roo remained the state with the highest number of cases, contributing 791 to the national figure (671 cases in men).


Dengue - Americas

During the year 2022, a significant increase in the number of dengue cases and deaths was observed in the Americas region compared to previous years. This behavior has continued in the first weeks of 2023 and, in some countries, it has become even more pronounced, resulting in an overload in health services.

MDR Salmonella Newport in returned travelers form Mexico

Some travelers who have spent time in Mexico have been infected with multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella Newport. MDR Salmonella has developed the ability to defeat drugs designed to kill them. Infections with MDR Salmonella can be difficult to treat. Clinicians should follow CDC’s treatment guidance. Many travelers with MDR Salmonella Newport infections reported eating beef, cheese (including queso fresco and Oaxaca), beef jerky, or dried beef (carne seca) before they got sick.
