The article presents a response to a study on cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) published in the October-December 2005 issue. The authors observed that there is only one case of CL with HIV infection in contrast to the claim that there are two existing cases cited. The authors observed that references were given in favor of post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis when they have diagnosed the condition as CL.
