[Article in French]


Tegumentary leishmaniasis cases associated with HIV infections were rarely reported. We present a case of diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis in a senegalese patient with HIV 1 infection. The diagnosis was supported by a cutaneous biopsy but no Leishmania strain could be isolated by cultures from cutaneous specimens.
