Abstract: Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease with diverse clinical manifestations, and considered a public health problem in endemic countries such as Brazil. Mucosal lesions usually involve the upper respiratory tract, with a predilection for nose and larynx. Oral involvement is unusual and in most cases it becomes evident after several years of resolution of the original cutaneous lesions. Oral lesions classically appear as mucosal ulcerations, mainly in the hard or soft palate. This report describes the clinicopathological data of 11 cases of mucocutaneous leishmaniasis with oral manifestations. Two cases of Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis and one case of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis were confirmed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism or DNA sequencing in mucosal samples.
