Localized cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) typically presents as nodules, or noduloulcerative plaques located mostly on face and extremities. Various unusual clinical presentations have also been reported in literature. Eyelid is one of the rare sites for the sand fly to bite and produce CL. An elderly male is reported here with extensive lesion of CL involving whole of his right upper lid and making him unable to open his eye. He was treated with melamine antimonite compound and was cured in about 4 weeks.
