Cutaneo-visceral leishmaniasis: a new opportunistic infection in patients infected with HIV



Cutaneo-visceral leishmaniasis: a new opportunistic infection in patients infected with HIV



Medicina Cutanea Ibero Latino Americana 18(2): 119-123



The case is reported of an HIV-infected patient admitted to hospital with fever, diarrhoea and a cutaneous nodule. Cutaneous leishmaniasis was diagnosed based on histopathological examination. Subsequent examinations revealed visceral leishmaniasis. Three cycles of treatment (with antimonials, pentamidine and metronidazole) were required to clear the infection.
