|Abstract:||Diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis is a rare chronic infectious disease, associated with Leishmania mexicana and L. amazonensis, presenting as multiple non-ulcerative painless nodules, with a tendency to relapse soon after treatment. We report a case of a 56-year-old Mexican woman exhibiting nodular lesions, plaques, crusts and scars involving the whole body. A solitary nodule was present at the junction between hard and soft palates. Diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis is a disfiguring disease resulting in severe scarring if untreated|
