Abstract: Three cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis with unusual presentation seen at Central Hospital Tripoli, Libya are described. Case No. 1 and 2 had 102 and 109 noduloulcerative lesions with generalized almost bilaterally symmetrical distribution, suggestive of dissemination. Case No. 3 had large verrucous carcinoma but histopathology suggested lupoid (chronic cutaneous) leishmaniasis. Patient No. 2 developed hypersensitivity reaction to sodium stibogluconate after 10 days but responded well to the treatment. Case No. 2 did not tolerate the above treatment and was treated successfully with combination of rifampicin and INH. Case No. 3 was treated successfully with liquid nitrogen cryotherapy by Cryosurg-Frigitonics, using special open probes.

Abstract: La leishmaniasis es una enfermedad de la piel y las membranas mucosas causada por protozoos pertenecientes al género Leishmania. Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud, la enfermedad adquirió proporciones de epidemia en Afganistán y en los campamentos para refugiados de este país en Pakistán, después de la agresión de la Organización del Tratado del Atlántico Norte encabezada por los Estados Unidos a Afganistán en su cruzada contra el terrorismo, por lo que se decide presentar un caso con diagnóstico presuntivo de leishmaniasis cutánea, proveniente de una aldea donde se observó un incremento de casos confirmados con esta afección. Leishmaniasis is a disease of the skin and the mucous membranes caused by protozoa corresponding to the genus Leishmania. According to the World Health Organization, the disease acquired epidemic proportions in Afganistan and in the refugee camps of this country in Pakistan, after the aggression of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization headed by the United States to Afghanistan in its war against terrorism. That's why, it was decided to present a case with presumptive diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis from a village, where it was observed an increase of cases confirmed with this affection.

Abstract: Background: Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is known for its clinical diversity and increasing numbers of new and rare variants of the disease are being reported these days. Aim: The aim of this descriptive study was to look for and report the atypical presentations of this common disease occurring in Pakistan. Methods: The study was carried out in three hospitals (MH, Rawalpindi; PAF Hospital, Sargodha; and CMH, Muzaffarabad) from 2002 to 2006. Military and civilian patients of all ages, both males and females, belonging to central and north Punjab province and Kashmir were included in the study. Clinical as well as parasitological features of cutaneous leishmaniasis were studied. The unusual lesions were photographed and categorized accordingly using simple descriptive statistics. Results: Out of 718 patients of cutaneous leishmaniasis, 41 (5.7%) had unusual presentations. The commonest among unusual morphologies was lupoid leishmaniasis 14 (34.1%), followed by sporotrichoid 5 (12.1%), paronychial 3 (7.3%), lid leishmaniasis 2 (4.9%), psoriasiform 2 (4.9%), mycetoma-like 2 (4.9%), erysipeloid 2 (4.9%), chancriform 2 (4.9%), whitlow 1 (2.4%), scar leishmaniasis 1 (2.4%), DLE-like 1 (2.4%), ′squamous cell carcinoma′-like 1 (2.4%), zosteriform 1 (2.4%), eczematous 1 (2.4%), verrucous 1 (2.4%), palmar/plantar 1 (2.4%) and mucocutaneous 1 (2.4%). Conclusion: In Pakistan, an endemic country for CL, the possibility of CL should be kept in mind while diagnosing common dermatological diseases like erysipelas, chronic eczema, herpes zoster, paronychia; and uncommon disorders like lupus vulgaris, squamous cell carcinoma, sporotrichosis, mycetoma and other deep mycoses.
