Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Cutaneous leishmaniasis skin infection on a patient's arm, close-up. This condition is caused by Leishmania protozoan parasites. They are transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected sandfly. The cutaneous (skin) form is the most common. The lesions generally heal, though scarring is possible. Treatment is by drugs or by cryotherapy. Leishmania parasites are found in subtropical and tropical regions worldwide. In this case the infection occurred in tropical South America.
