15 years back we were getting cases of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis(CL) from only Shuja abad road area in Multan Pakistan. Now after this period the cases are coming from walled city as well. It shows that this disease is spreading and involving the thickly populated ares of this city. Multan is present in the south part of Pakistan and is one of the city of Punjab province.
Cutaneous Leishmaniasis has typically un-healing ulcers on mostly exposed part of the body like arm and face.
In one our study we found this disease most common in the students of religious schools(Madrassa).
So these patients are guided to get confirm the diagnosis of this disease for the treatment. Because these ulcers are resistant to antibiotics.
