Development and External Validation of a Clinical Prognostic Score for Death in Visceral Leishmaniasis Patients in a High HIV Co-Infection Burden Area in EthiopiaAbongomera, C; Ritmeijer, K; Vogt, F; Buyze, J; Mekonnen, Z; Admassu, H; Colebunders, R; Mohammed, R; Lynen, L; Diro, E; et al. (Public Library of Science, 2017-06-05)In Ethiopia, case fatality rates among subgroups of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) patients are high. A clinical prognostic score for death in VL patients could contribute to optimal management and reduction of these case fatality rates. We aimed to identify predictors of death from VL, and to develop and externally validate a clinical prognostic score for death in VL patients, in a high HIV co-infection burden area in Ethiopia.
