Leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease prevalent throughout the world. According to the geographic region in which different Leishmania species are found it can present variably. Because of the increase in both international travel and immigrant populations, the numbers of reported cases of leishmaniasis is on the increase. It is important that clinicians are able to recognize the cutaneous lesions and unusual presentations of leishmaniasis (CL). Our case was an incidental finding during treatment of a gunshot wound. The lesions were mistaken for facial pimples because they were numerous and the patient was a teenager. The patient was treated with sodium stibogluconate.
