Due to the puncture of the female sand fly type Phlebotomus (Ancient World) or Lutzomya (New World) the human being can be also affected.

In this present work, we expose the three unic cases of Leishmaniasis affecting the larynx, diagnosticated in the sanitary area of Toledo. Due to the specific characteristics that present each case different treatments for each one have been realised, and its results and treatment exposed.
