Clin Case Rep. 2014 Dec;2(6):331-2. doi: 10.1002/ccr3.130. Epub 2014 Sep 4.


Successful management of cases with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) and tuberculosis is a challenge for clinicians, because a guideline for that is currently unavailable. We report the first case in Bangladesh who developed VL during her treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis and was treated successfully with multidose liposomal amhptericin B for VL.
