abstract

  • We present a case of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in a previously immunocompetent patient. At the time of presentation, he was co-infected with Cryptococcus neoformans. This case demonstrates how infectious diseases besides human immunodeficiency virus can lead to immunosuppression for patients, placing them at risk of opportunistic infections.
