Multiple and unusual clinical features of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) had been reported as hyperkeratotic, psoriasiform, eczematoid, zosteri form pattern, warty lesions, erysipeloid, and acneiform lesions. The clinical features of CL primarily depend on the host's cell-mediated response and the species of Leishmania being involved. In this paper we reported two cases of atypical CL from Iran, Shohada-e-Tajrish and Loghman-e-Hakim hospitals presented with infiltrative erythematous lesions covering the perioral region and the lower limb, respectively. The diagnosis of cutaneous leishmaniasis was confirmed with skin smears and biopsies.
