ID#: 18876
This anterior view of a patient’s head and neck, revealed the presence of what was determined to be a cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) infection, due to what was believed to be Leishmania mexicana, involving the right outer ear, before the implementation of any treatment. Note the chronic inflammatory, nodular, roughened appearance of the lesion, indicating its long-standing duration. See PHIL 15062, for a lateral view of this patient’s right ear, before beginning treatment, and 15063, for a lateral view of this patient’s ear after beginning treatment with sodium stibogluconate, or Pentostam®.
