This image depicts a crater ulcer, on the volar surface of this person’s right forearm, due to a case of leishmaniasis. Note the scabby, erythematous, raw wound interior, which revealed a blackish colored residue that was said to be the remnants of an unknown home remedy. The white areas on the arm, were left behind when the adhesive bandages had been removed in order to reveal the wound.
