Abstract

RIVELLI, Victoria et al. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.4, pp. 379-381. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000400016.

We report the case of a patient with alcohol intake and malnutrition-related immunosuppression who sought medical attention for multiple ulcerated lesions. Laboratory tests revealed the diagnosis and the patient responded well to conventional anti-leishmaniasis therapy. Polymorphous lesions prompted differential diagnoses such as histoplasmosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, ecthyma and lymphoma.

Keywords : Leishmaniasis; Leishmaniasis, mucocutaneous; Leishmaniasis, mucocutaneous [diagnosis].
