ABSTRACT
Leishmaniasis, is a disease that is transmitted by infected sand flies when they suck the blood of mammals. It is estimated that more than 1.5 million new cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) cases occur throughout the world every year and the disease is endemic in southern and southeastern Turkey. Cutaneous leishmaniasis presents a spectrum of manifestations both clinically and histologically. As is in our case, histopathology can be more important than clinical examination. The diagnosis is made by clinical examination and histopathology as well as demonstrating the parasites in the smears obtained from the lesion. In this article, we aimed to present of CL cases with atipic appearance.
