Resumen : A seven-year-old girl presented to the Department of Tropical Medicine, Biomedical Research Center, Central University of Ecuador, with four small crusted papules in the periphery of a large central scar on her left cheek. A pri- mary lesion had appeared a year before as a painless but itchy mosquito-bite-like papule that later ulcerated and healed without treatment in approximately six months. However, four months later four small papules appeared on the border of the scar (Panel A). She received intramuscular pentavalent antimonial (Glucantime) for 15 consecutive days, but the lesions showed no improvement. Skin smears taken from one of the crusted papules and stained with Diff- QuikTM solutions I-III (Seamens Healthcare Diagnostics Inc., Newark, DE, USA) showed abundant Leishmania amastigotes. The parasite was identified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) as belonging to Leishmania (Viannia) guyanensis.
