Leech as vectors

Parasitologists,

	Are there any significant human parasites that are transmitted by
leeches.  I can't recall hearing of any, but the question came up in a
general biology class and it appeared to me that a leech would be a good
vector, but I haven't heard of any parasites that they transmit. 

Thanks
