Atypical mycocutaneous manifestation of Leishmania tropica in a refugee

In this case report a male 19-year-old Syrian refugee presented with a sore throat. A biopsy from larynx detected Leishmania tropica compatible with leishmaniasis, although L. tropica does not normally cause mucosal leishmaniasis (CL). An immunodeficiency was detected, and the patient was treated for hypogammaglobulinaemia and CL three times, before the symptoms disappeared. Leishmaniasis is a disease, which should be taken into consideration, when refugees present with atypical clinical manifestations, especially in immunosuppressed patients.
