A retrospective study was conducted in France in 1998 to determine the clinical features of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in 91 patients infected cocomitantly with human immunodeficiency virus. Our data suggest that the clinical manifestations of VL may be influenced by the immunological status, with atypical locations of Leishmania amastigotes more frequently found in severely immunocompromised patients. In such patients, the involvement of atypical locations may lead to the discovery of VL.
