Sharif -uz- Zaman, Mehr Dil Khan Wazir, M.A. Khaliq, Shakeel Ahmad, Waheed Shah

Abstract


Abstract: Seven cases of visceral leishmaniasis are reported. They were seen during 1988 and
were between the ages of 1—1/2—8. One patient left without treatment, another left while the
treatment was just started. One died before treatment could be started due to late availability of
the drug. Four remaining patients were treated with pentavalent antimony compounds, blood
transfusion and general supportive treatment. Two out of four patients were treated successfully
while the other two are under treatment and improving.
