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 , 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.
