Post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL) is very uncommon among HIV-positive patients, and very few cases have so far been documented. A case of atypical disseminated leishmaniasis resembling PKDL in an HIV-positive patient successfully treated with N-methylglucamine antimoniate is reported. The polymerase chain reaction performed on the skin lesions was positive for Leishmania infantum.
