General Parasitology and Protozoa
Leishmania recidivans is seen in infection with:
a. Leishmania recidivans is caused by L. Tropica.
b. Leishmaniasis recidivans occur years after a localized cutaneous leishmaniasis lesion has healed, commonly presenting on the face.
c. New ulcers and papules form over the edge of the old scar and proceed inward to form a psoriasiform lesion.
d. Infection may be from reactivation of dormant parasites or new infection from a different species. Infections tend to be resistant to treatment.
