Late Cutaneous Leishmaniasis

Arch Dermatol. 1969;99(4):455-458. doi:10.1001/archderm.1969.01610220083014

Late cutaneous leishmaniasis is an uncommon sequela of Oriental sore; its incidence has been poorly defined, but variously reported in the range of 3% to 10%. The disease is most difficult to treat and relapse is frequent. Intralesional pentavalent antimony was used successfully in this case, and to date no recurrence has been noted.
