This was study performed in Thi-Qar province , Iraqi  2016-2017. Total of  370 samples  of  suspected  patients were taken and after examining them using  geimsa stain , obtained  312 samples of    Leishmania tropic , were 186 for males and 126 for females .The  bacteria isolated from the lesions were , 62 males (67.4%) , female 30 (32.6 %),where the associated bacteria were in both sexes, staph auerus 52 cases (56.5%) , Escherichia coli 8 cases (8.6%) , Bacillus cereus 6 cases(6.5%) , Pseudomonas. Aeruginesa 5 cases (5.4% ),   Strepto. Pyogenes 6 cases(6.5%) ,Strepto. agalactiae 3  cases (3.3%). While other isolated in males only and did not appear  in  females ,  Listeria  moncytogenes 3 cases(3.4%) ,Actinobacteria .spp 2 cases(2.2%) ,Klebsiella. Pneumonia 2 cases (2.2%) ,Rodococcus .equi 1cases  (1.1%) ,anaeroberia bacteria ,Peptococcus niger 2 cases (2.2%), Peptostreptococcus .spp 2 cases (2.2%) .

Then we took bacteria presence more with Leishmaniasis ,where it was staph aureus  and  after its diagnosis was studied all 52 cases Staph. aureus isolates were further examined using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for detection of 16SrRNA ,mecA and PVI gene .
