Description Leishmaniasis represents a complex, globally widespread opportunistic infection ranging from the visceral form, also called kala-azar, to the mucocutaneous and cutaneous disease.It is endemic in the Mediterranian Basin, Leishmania infantum being demonstrated as the main causative agent of autochthonous cases in Sicily, Italy. The long-term use of systemic antipsoriatic agents, including biotechnological drugs, may cause a higher susceptibility to opportunistic infections, so physicians maintain a high level of suspicion with treated patients. However, some skin tumours, because of the rare occurrence and/or the atypical clinical features, may mimic another kind of disease thus leading to a delay in diagnosis and treatment. An exemplary case is reported herein.
