[Renal and urinary tract leishmaniasis. A disease to keep in mind].


Report of a case of renal and urinary tract leishmaniasis in a 61-year old male patient. The ureteral lesion responded favourably to treatment, unlike the renal one which required conservative surgery. Review of the literature stressing the fact that no other case has been found of kidney and urinary tract involvement. It is concluded that in the future, at least in those areas with a high prevalence of leishmaniasis, this condition should be taken into account as differential diagnosis when facing a toxic picture with renal involvement of the calyceal ecstasies type.
