Cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania tropica and Leishmania major is endemic in Pakistan and is the second most prevalent vector-borne disease in the country (after malaria). We report a case of non-ulcerating, sporotrichoid cutaneous leishmaniasis that recurred 2 years after successful treatment of two typical leishmaniasis ulcers. The patient came from Kohat, a border town in the northwestern region of Pakistan about 50 miles east of Afghanistan. It is important for physicians to be familiar with unusual presentations of this common condition.
