Co-Infection of Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis and HIV report of a case of mucosal leishmaniasis in Cochabamba, Bolivia

We describe the first case of Leishmania/HIV co-infection reported in Bolivia. Initially hospitalized with a diagnosis of pneumonia and bronchitis, the patient had numerous cutaneous and mucosal lesions caused by Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis. The patient was also diagnosed as severely immunocompromised because of HIV infection.
