abstract

  • Visceral leishmaniasis (kala-azar) is a disseminated protozoal infection that occurs in areas of the world other than North America. In endemic regions, kala-azar is also an opportunistic infection associated with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. We report a case of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-associated kala-azar acquired abroad that was first expressed in New York City. Human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients who have lived or traveled abroad may present in this country with unusual infections.
