T Carateum

T. carateum causes pinta (also known as mal de pinto, azul, or carate). Pinta is characterized by primary skin lesions, which may last for years; a latent period may follow, or secondary, disseminated lesions, called pin-tides, may appear and may persist for the patient's life. Serologic tests do not become positive until after secondary lesions have appeared. Pinta was once endemic in much of Central and South America, and remains prevalent in remote rural populations (Table 1). T. carateum can be propagated only in primates; thus, no organisms are currently available for genetic studies.
