This image depicts a right lateral view of an elderly male patient’s head, in a clinical setting, who had tilted his head backwards, thereby, revealing a nasal deformation referred to as a tapir nose. This deformation occurred due to an erosion of the nasal septum, which is better seen from a frontal view in PHIL 15064. The septal erosion was determined to be due to a mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL) infection.
