Hypersensitivity reaction over lesions of post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis mimicking type 1 reaction in leprosy


, : Hypersensitivity reaction over lesions of post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis mimicking type 1 reaction in leprosy. International Journal of Leprosy and Other Mycobacterial Diseases 67(1): 66-67

The case is reported of a 40-year-old man from India who presented with erythematous elevated lesions and hypopigmented patches on the face of 2 years duration. A diagnosis of post kala azar dermal leishmaniasis (caused by Leishmania donovani) was made which was confirmed by haemagglutination. The patient was treated with sodium stibogluconate but injections were stopped after 3 days when he developed pain and swelling over the skin lesions.
