Abstract

We describe a case of post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis occurring after diagnosis of visceral leishmaniasis in an HIV-1-infected woman. The skin lesions did not recover after treatment with oral miltefosine at 100 mg/day for five cycles of 28 days but responded to treatment with liposomal amphotericin B.
