Leishmania and human immunodeficiency virus coinfection: the first 10 years.
Over 850 Leishmania-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) coinfection cases have been recorded, the majority in Europe, where 7 to 17% of HIV-positive individuals with fever have amastigotes, suggestingExpand

A nested polymerase chain reaction (Ln-PCR) for diagnosing and monitoring Leishmania infantum infection in patients co-infected with human immunodeficiency virus.
We investigated a Leishmania-specific nested polymerase chain reaction (Ln-PCR) for the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of L. infantum infections in patients co-infected with humanExpand

Visceral leishmaniasis in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. Co-operative Group for the Study of Leishmaniasis in AIDS.
We describe 40 HIV-seropositive patients who developed visceral leishmaniasis. All the patients lived in areas endemic for visceral leishmaniasis and belonged to groups at risk for AIDS. Twenty-threeExpand

Relapses versus reinfections in patients coinfected with Leishmania infantum and human immunodeficiency virus type 1.
In the Mediterranean basin, Leishmania infantum is a major opportunistic parasite in people with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), and up to 9% of the patients with AIDS suffer from newlyExpand
