Abstract

Cutaneous leishmaniasis has a number of morphologic variants such as acute paronychial, chancriform, annular, palmoplantar, zosteriform, and eczematoid, which depend on the immune condition of the patients, the subspecies of the Leishmania, and the area of the localization. In recent times, the number of reports of new and rare variants of cutaneous leishmaniasis has been increasing. In this report, we describe a very rare variant of Cutaneous leishmaniasis, presented with ulceration on glabellar region and infiltrative erythematous lesions covering the center of the face, resembling erysipelas.
