Cutaneous leishmaniasis was diagnosed in an Indiana resident, an 80-year-old man who had visited Afganistan 7 months earlier. Although cultures were negative, skin biopsy demonstrated round to oval bodies that stained strongly positive with Giemsa staining. His ulcerated plaques cleared readily with oral ketoconazole.
