Abstract

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is an important skin disease caused by a protozoan known as Leishmanis. It is one of the six important parasitic diseases in the world and occurs as endemic form in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of treatment and treatment selection according to the lesions properties in south of Ilam province between 2010 and 2015. In this cross-sectional study, data were collected from 3638 patients with Cutaneous leishmaniasis during 2010-2015 whose information were recorded at the health center of the province. SPSS vol. 21 software was used to analyze the data. Out of 3638 patients suffering from leishmaniosis, 60.80 were male. The age group under 10 years old showed the highest incidence rate. 39.44 of the patients were treated with intramuscular Glucantime injection 35.34 with intralesional Glucantime injection, 16.44 with cryotherapy, and 7.59 with cryotherapy and Intralesional Glucantime injection. There was a significant relationship between the number of lesions, the shape and size of the lesions and the treatment method selection (p < 0.001). Among 3596 treated patients, 37.43 were recovered completely without any complications, 56.92 reported to be recovering and patients were seemingly less likely to be affected by serious lesions.
