This paper reports two indigenous cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis for the first time in Kafr Shokr, Qualyobia Governorate. One of the two cases was misdiagnosed as cutaneous tuberculosis (primary complex) and was kept on TB treatment, but with no clinical improvement. The two patients were successfully treated with sodium stibogluconate (pentostam).
