Abstract

The case of a 13 month-old-boy with visceral leishmaniasis acquired in Brittany, a region of France where leishmaniasis is not endemic, is presented. The mode of contamination remains unclear, although a transfusional origin through blood transfusions during the neonatal period appears the most likely.
