Cutaneous leishmaniasis in a Japanese returnee from West Africa successfully treated with liposomal amphotericin B.
J Dermatol. 2011 Nov; 38(11):1062-5.JD

Abstract

Leishmaniasis has been occasionally reported in returnees from endemic areas. Here, we report a case of cutaneous leishmaniasis in a 33-year-old Japanese man who presented with a skin nodule after returning from an 8-year stay in West Africa including Burkina Faso. He was successfully treated with liposomal amphotericin B with no significant adverse effects. This is the first Japanese case of cutaneous leishmaniasis treated successfully with liposomal amphotericin B.
