Abstract

Localized cutaneous leishmaniasis is a chronic ulcerative, usually self-limiting skin disease, and one of the major tropical diseases. This disease is caused by an infection of genus Leishmania, transmitted by a sandfly, and there are some cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis in Koreans after travelling abroad in endemic areas, such as the Middle East and Africa. We report a case of localized cutaneous leishmania in a 70-year-old native Korean man without history of a trip abroad.
