Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two cases of Old World cutaneous leishmaniasis (OWCL) acquired by travelers to Morocco are described. In Australia, OWCL is more frequently seen in migrants rather than returned travelers. The patients were treated with sodium stibogluconate and fluconazole. Optimal treatment is not established, particularly in returned travelers, but identification of Leishmania species can help with the selection of appropriate therapy.
