Abstract


We present a case of mucosal leishmaniasis located in the pharynx and possibly the maxillary sinus in a healthy 51-year-old man. The only manifestations of leishmaniasis disease in the described case were dysphagia, voice changes and a longstanding painless pharyngeal mass. Thorough clinical examination and investigations were carried out and treatment was provided in the form of amphotericin B, piperacillin/ tazobactam and linezolid. A review of the literature on this subject has been undertaken.
