Leishmania major and Leishmania braziliensis both cause cutaneous leishmaniasis, but the former kills BALB/c mice while the latter is killed by the mice. This killing of L. braziliensis occurred by a gamma interferon-dependent mechanism, potentially made possible by the observed lack of high interleukin-4 production.
