Abstract

A cause of cutaneou leishmaniosis is reported in which the similarities with ordinary dermatoses made differential diagnosis rather difficult. The patient's provenance from a endemic area and the exposed location of the lesions indicated leishmaniosis but conclusive diagnosis was only confirmed when the parasite was found in the lesion.
