RIVERA RIVADULLA, Roxana; CAMERO MACHIN, Julio Cesar  and  GINIEBRA MARIN, Grecia María. Hansen's disease in an adult infected with human immunodeficiency virus. MEDISAN [online]. 2023, vol.27, n.4, e4124.  Epub Aug 29, 2023. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a patient infected by the human immunodeficiency virus in early symptomatic phase is described, who was seen at the Dermatology Service of the Dr. León Cuervo Rubio Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital of Pinar del Río for presenting infiltrated erythematous lesions of three months of evolution in the right lower limb, with altered pain and thermal sensation. A basiloscopic and histopathologic study was indicated, which confirmed the presumptive diagnosis of borderline tuberculoid leprosy, and therefore polychemotherapy combined with antiretroviral therapy was started, which favored the patient’s evolution.

Keywords : leprosy; borderline leprosy; Mycobacterium leprae; aids; human immunodeficiency virus.
