  1. Injecting drug use as risk factor for visceral leishmaniasis in AIDS patients.

    Article - En anglais

    In Madrid Region 6652 AIDS cases were diagnosed between 1982 and 1993.

    Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) was present in 166 (2.49%). VL frequency among injecting drug users proved higher than that for the other transmission categories (relative risk 2.57 ; 95% confidence interval 1.64-4.01).

    This could point to an alternative Leishmania transmission route via needle sharing.
