Human immunodeficiency virus and recurrence of cutaneous leishmaniasis long after healed localized cutaneous leishmaniasis due to Leishmania aethiopica



Human immunodeficiency virus and recurrence of cutaneous leishmaniasis long after healed localized cutaneous leishmaniasis due to Leishmania aethiopica



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 89(4): 400-401



Two cases are reported from Ethiopia of cutaneous leishmaniasis recurring in HIV-positive patients long after the healing of localized cutaneous leishmaniasis. In both cases recurrence was at the site of the original healed lesion, suggesting disease reactivation from persistent viable parasites. The isolate from one of the patients was typed as Leishmania aethiopica zymodeme MON 69. In one patient the final diagnosis was mucocutaneous leishmaniasis, and in the other, cutaneous leishmaniasis.
