Acute cutaneous leishmaniasis is a parasitic infectious disease prevalent in tropical areas. Most doctors in non-endemic countries are not familiar with this disease. Spontaneous tendon ruptures occurring by different mechanisms have been described in the literature but a tendon rupture caused by a skin ulcer secondary to a parasitic infection has not been reported before. In this article clinical and diagnostic features of cutaneous leishmaniasis are reviewed and a case with spontaneous extensor tendon rupture due to cutaneous leishmaniasis is presented.
