Leishmanial Hepatitis with Chronic Hepatitis B Infection Treated Successfully with Liquid Form of Liposomal Amphotericin B - A Case Report
Keywords:Leishmanial Hepatitis, Hepatitis B, Liposomal Amphotericin B
Hepatic involvement either due to leishmaniasis or due to coexisting viral infection sometime poses a problem for the clinicians. Atypical presentation is also challenging for them. We present a case of visceral leishmaniasis (Kala-azar) from a non endemic zone, co infection with hepatitis B virus simulating chronic viral hepatitis successfully treated with liquid form of liposomal amphotericin B.
