Key Words Cutaneous Leishmaniasis; Neglected diseases; Leishmania (Viannia) panamensis; Miltefosine; Leishmania; Case report
Core Tip This case highlights the importance of prompt and accurate diagnosis, and appropriate treatment of cutaneous leishmaniasis to prevent further complications and advancement to mucosal form. It should be considered in the differential diagnosis of skin lesions with appropriate epidemiologic context. Oral therapy with miltefosine is available for use as in this case. It is important to evaluate for human immunodeficiency virus disease since presentation and complications in immunosuppressed individuals can be more severe.
