Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease caused by Leishmania species that are transmitted through Phlebotomus vector. There are several atypical forms of CL that have been described, which may cause some difficulties in diagnosis and treatment. In this report, we present an 80-year-old male patient with erysipeloid leishmaniasis, a rare atypical form of cutaneous leishmaniasis, who was successfully treated.
