Post-Kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis ( a review of 10 cases).


Ten cases of Post-Kala-azar Dermal Leishmaniasis (PKDL) have been studied. The sites of involvement and morphological character have been noted. Skin scraping, biopsy, serological and biochemical changes have been looked for. Presence of visceral leishmaniasis along with PKDL had been searched. Response to therapy with antimony compounds have been observed and found satisfactory. Visceral leishmaniasis although not frequent now a days, the incidence of PKDL is still prevalent to some extent in this country.
