CODAS, Manuel Esteban  and  BENITEZ RIOS, Jesús Marcelo. Visceral leishmaniasis with massive hemorrhage. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2022, vol.9, n.2, pp.131-136. ISSN 2312-3893.

Life-threatening complications from the use of amphotericin B deoxycholate occur in less than 1% of cases. Among them, massive bleeding is described mainly due to thrombocytopenia.

We present the case of a 38-year-old male patient, from an endemic area, with severe visceral leishmaniasis who, after starting treatment with amphotericin B deoxycholate, presented massive alveolar hemorrhage due to thrombocytopenia.

Keywords : amphotericin B; hemorrhage; visceral leishmaniasis; thrombocytopenia.
