Abstract

We report the case of a laboratory worker who received close medical follow-up after accidently inoculating her hand with a needle containing a Humera strain of Leishmania donovani amastigotes. She developed a leishmanoma and histologic evidence of local lymphatic dissemination before being treated. The spectrum of disease caused by L. donovani is discussed.
