Abstract

A woman had cutaneous, mucosal, and possible visceral leishmaniasis simultaneously. Many of her cutaneous lesions consisted of boggy indurations rather than customary papules, nodules, or ulcers. This unusual case was finally cured after four courses of miltefosine, one course of antimony, and two courses of Ambisome.
