Abstract

MACHADO, Elizabeth S. et al. Disseminated American muco-cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania brasiliensis brasiliensis in a patient with AIDS: a case report. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 1992, vol.87, n.4, pp. 487-492. ISSN 0074-0276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02761992000400005.

The authors report a case of culture-proven disseminated American muco-cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania brasiliensis brasiliensis in an HIV positive patient. Lesions began in the oropharynx and nasal mucosa eventually spreading to much of the skin surface. The response to a short course of glucantime therapy was good.

Keywords : muco-cutaneos leishmaniasis; HIV infection.
