Visceral leishmaniasis (kala-azar) is caused by the protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani and transmitted by the bite of infected sand fly Phlebotomus argentipes. Only a few cases of congenital transmission have been reported. We are reporting a 15 days old baby with congenital visceral leishmaniasis and then the literature is reviewed.
