Abstract

The case of a 15-year old boy with recurrent cutaneous leishmaniasis is reported. Species identification was based on results of serotyping and isoenzyme analysis. The patient did not respond to rifampin combined with isoniazid or to ketoconazole. Subsequent therapy with systemic sodium antimony gluconate resulted in complete regression of the lesions.
