Abstract

Abstract.

Conventional understanding suggests that simultaneous infection with more than one species of is unlikely. In Peru, co-infections are clinically relevant because causative species dictates prognosis, treatment response, and follow-up. We describe a case of () and () co-infection in a Peruvian patient with cutaneous leishmaniasis.
