FIRST CASE OF VISCERAL LEISHMANIOSIS/HIV COINFECTION IN NIŠ – SOUTHEASTERN SERBIA

Abstract - Visceral leishmaniosis (VL) has emerged as an important opportunistic parasitosis associated with human immunodeficiency
virus (HIV) infection. The aim of this paper is to report the first case of Leishmania/HIV coinfection in
a patient from Niš (Southeastern Serbia). Microscopical examination of Giemsa-stained bone marrow (BM) smears show
the presence of Leishmania spp. amastigotes based on their morphological characteristics. In spite of the parasitological

VISCERAL LEISHMANIASIS ASSOCIATED HEMOPHAGOCYTIC LYMPHOHISTIOCYTOSIS

ABSTRACT
Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is caused by the dissemination of the
protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani throughout the reticuloendothelial
system. This systemic disease may mimic or lead to
several types of hematological disorders including hemophagocytic
lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). Infection associated hemophagocytic
syndrome caused by Leishmania is very rare and difficult
to diagnose. Herein, we describe an infant with HLH associated
with VL. The severity of HLH secondary to visceral leishmaniasis
