Old world cutaneous leishmaniasis (Aleppo evil, Baghdad boil, Delhi boil, oriental sore) erythema diffuse lesions skin nodules
skin ulcers lymphadenopathy
It should be noted that leishmaniasis, leprosy, and ringworm are all distinct, regardless of being lumped together on one webpage. I have seen all of them. Ringworm is any of several very common and easily treated fungal infections. The other two are much scarier.|
You can find all of them in Wikipedia.
Dr. Paul Brand was a pioneer and hero in the study and treatment of leprosy.
