Abstract

Clinical features of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) are characterized by a very significant polymorphism making its diagnosis a real challenge for healthcare professionals.
Herpes-zoster-like or zosteriform leishmaniasis is exceptional and often misdiagnosed atypical/unusual presentation of CL. Its prevalence is estimated at 0.14-0.17% of all CL and 2.4% of atypical CL, and is often reported as sporadic clinical cases.
We present an original case of zosteriform CL at the elbow, in a young immunocompetent Tunisian woman.
