Overview

Cutaneous leishmaniasis must be differentiated from other diseases that cause ulcerative skin lesions, such as: bacterial skin infections, blastomycosis, fungal skin infections, eczema, leprosy, sarcoidosis, syphilis, skin neoplasm, and tuberculosis. Visceral leishmaniasis must be differentiated from other diseases that cause fever, weight loss, hepatosplenomegaly, and pancytopenia, such as: brucellosis, bacterial endocarditis, schistosomiasis, leukemia, lymphomas, miliary tuberculosis, hemolytic anemia, and HIV.
