Serhat Sayin, Metin Bagci, Serdar Ugras, Abdulkadir Basturk

Abstract

Leishmaniasis is a vector-borne parasitic disease that constitutes a major public health problem. Leishmaniasis presents with various clinical manifestations, from skin involvement to life-threatening visceral disease. Fever of unknown origin should be considered in the differential diagnosis. In this case, we describe a patient referred with a diagnosis of multiple myeloma, but ultimately diagnosed with leishmaniasis based on our evaluation, to draw attention to this disease.

Keywords: Fever, leishmaniasis, hypergammaglobulinemia, hepatosplenomegaly
