Abstract

Leishmaniasis is a common parasitic disease classified to acute and chronic types based on the duration of the disease. The acute lesion is presented as ulcerated papule and nodule that heal after a few months with an atrophic scar. The chronic form of cutaneous leishmaniasis is a nonhealing lesion that is persistent for more than one year. Here, we describe a chronic case of leishmaniasis developed after a head injury, similar to a keloidal scar.
