Abstract

This case report presents an 8-year-old girl, from Fars province in Iran, diagnosed with cutaneous leishmaniasis in the form of multiple nodular, ulcerative and crusted lesions disseminated on the face, trunk and extremities. The result of direct smear of ulcers was positive for Leishmania parasite. The patient had no immunodeficiency or relevant family history making her susceptible for disseminated cutaneous leishmaniasis. The skin lesions failed to respond to multiple treatment courses of meglumine antimoniate or amphotericin B but were successfully treated with simultaneous miltefosine and liposomal amphotericin B.
