Abstract

Cutaneous Leishmaniasis (CL) is often a localized and self-limited disease, but its behavior changes in the state of immunosuppression. Here, we report a rare clinical presentation of disseminated CL after reactivation of leishmania infection in a 42 year old male with corticosteroid induced immune suppression.
