Abstract

Twelve immunocompetent adults with Mediterranean visceral leishmaniasis (VL) were treated with amphotericin B colloidal dispersion (ABCD; 2 mg/kg/d for 7 d). All patients showed rapid clinical response without significant adverse events. Two weeks after therapy they were parasitologically cured and no relapses occurred during 6 months. ABCD is a valid alternative in the management of Mediterranean VL in adult patients.
