Abstract

Background: Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a prevalent disease in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. It is transmitted by the parasite Leishmania through sand fly bites psychodidae families, flutamida subfamilies from human to human and animals. Cutaneous wounds usually occur with a small number of lesions but sometimes the number of lesions is very high requiring immediate and systemic treatment. Case Report: A 37-year-old woman nomadic tribes of Kermanshah in January 2015 with the development of 15 ulcers referred to the urban health centers in Dehloran city, Iran. Other family members were not sick and had no skin lesions. The patient had not any underlying disease. After referring the patient to a health center in the city of Dehloran, the wounds were examined. Smears were prepared from the wounds of patient and histological studies were conducted using Giemsa. By microscopic examination of the samples in the laboratory, promastigote leishmania was observed on the Lam smear. Conclusion: In the leishmaniasis disease, incidence of cutaneous wound is a symptom and the number of lesions depends on the frequency of bites, but a large number of serious injuries require serious and systemic treatment.
