Background: Chronic amastigote-negative cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a diagnostic challenge, as the parasite load may be low, or absent in biopsy tissue sections. Methods: A series of consecutiveExpand
Prevalence of Merkel cell Polyomavirus DNA in Cutaneous Lymphomas, Pseudolymphomas, and Inflammatory Skin Diseases
It is concluded that MCPyV DNA is infrequently, but consistently present in lesional tissue from patients with primary cutaneous lymphomas, pseudolymphomas, PLs, and inflammatory skin diseases; prevalence is in the range of 8%-17%. Expand
Cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia associated with Leishmania panamensis infection.
A case of CLH associated with L. panamensis infection is presented, also known as pseudolymphoma, is a reactive proliferation, probably secondary to persistent antigenic stimulation, and is seen among travellers returning from tropical and subtropical countries. Expand
Cutaneous pseudolymphomas: inflammatory reactive proliferations
Most pseudolymphomas are idiopathic, but some are secondary to known etiologies (drug intake, arthropod assaults, infectious agents and traumas). Expand
Renal sinus pseudolymphoma in a patient with multiple carcinomas: a case report and a brief review of the literature.
This is the second case of pseudolymphoma with a complete molecular characterization ever described in the renal sinus and the first one associated with multiple urogenital carcinomas. Expand
Clinical and epidemiological studies on the cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania (Leishmania) donovani in Sri Lanka
Although the data collected indicated that the transmission of the parasite causing CL was mostly outdoor (and possibly zoonotic) in the north of the country, most of the transmission in the south seemed to be peridomestic. Expand
Indolent cutaneous T-cell lymphoma presenting as cutaneous lymphocytosis in dogs.
Canine CL is best considered an initially indolent lymphoma, with slow progression and a potential for progression to high-grade lymphoma. Expand
Skin pseudolymphoma caused by cutaneous leismaniasia.
A case, in which the clinical presentation and microscopic features mimic cutaneous B-cell lymphoma and pseudolymphoma, is presented in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Expand
Cutaneous leishmaniasis mimicking cutaneous lymphoma
A case of CL mimicking a clinical presentation of cutaneous lymphoma is described, being able to simulate a large variety of benign and malign dermatological disorders. Expand
Idiopathic lymphocytoma cutis: a diagnostic dilemma
The presence of polymorphous cell infiltrates comprising of T and B lymphocytes, plasma cells, oeosinophils, histiocytes and dendritic cells along with lack of atypical lymphocytes after incisional biopsy support diagnosis of pseudolymphoma. Expand


Advances in leishmaniasis
Governed by parasite and host factors and immunoinflammatory responses, the clinical spectrum of leishmaniasis encompasses subclinical (inapparent), localised (skin lesions), and disseminatedExpand
Concomitant natural infection with L. donovani and L. major: A case report from Iraq
Isoenzyme studies of parasite isolates from the the bone marrow and from the cutaneous lesion revealed that these were L. donovani and L. major, respectively, the first report in Iraq of a proven concomitant infection with two species of leishmania parasites. Expand
Human cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania donovani s.l. in Kenya.
This constitutes the first human case of cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by L. donovani s.l. in Kenya, and the CAE isoenzyme profiles of these 2 Kenyan isolates were indistinguishable from those of Kenyan L.Donovani strains the authors designated as zymodeme Z6. Expand
[Topical treatment of persistent cutaneous leishmaniasis with paromomycin].
A female patient with a persistent cutaneous leishmaniasis successfully treated with topical administration of paromomycin is reported on. Expand
Localized cutaneous leishmaniasis due to Leishmania donovani and Leishmania tropica: preliminary findings of the study of 161 new cases from a new endemic focus in himachal pradesh, India.
Though rarely reported as a cause of LCL, L. donovani seems to be the predominant pathogen in this new focus of cutaneous leishmaniasis in Himachal Pradesh, where it is mainly endemic in the deserts of Rajasthan. Expand

Research for leishmaniasis has been more and more focusing on the development of new tools such as diagnostic tests, drugs and vaccines, and the newly available control tools should allow a scaling up of control activities in priority areas. Expand
Sri Lankan cutaneous leishmaniasis is caused by Leishmania donovani zymodeme MON-37.
Identification of 5 isolates from 4 CL patients by enzyme analysis during 2002 showed that they were all Leishmania donovani zymodeme MON-37, the parasite which also causes visceral leishmaniasis in India and East Africa. Expand
Genetic polymorphism within the leishmania donovani complex: correlation with geographic origin.
The RAPD profiles suggest that MON-30 belongs to L. donovani, and the genetic distance between the L. archibaldi strain and other leishmanias does not warrant existence of a separate species. Expand
