Two cases of polyarthritis in the dog resulting from Leishmania species infection are reviewed. The clinical investigations, laboratory findings and serological tests are summarised. Leishmanial amastigotes were detected in synovial fluid samples of multiple joints with marked inflammatory signs. Diagnosis was made by biopsy of bone marrow, skin and synovial fluid. Both dogs were initially treated with pentavalent sodium stibogluconate. Other causes of canine polyarthritis were excluded.
