Leishmaniasis is a infectious disease with broad spectrum of clinical features from typical noduloulcerative lesion to atypical lesions. In this article, we presented 4 cases with atypical presentation of cutaneous leishmaniasis lesions (including eczematous, sporotrichoid and lichenoid) in an endemic area in Iran, Kerman. The first case was a 28- year- old man presented with a pruritic purplish -red plaque with lichenoid appearance around proximal nail fold of right third finger since a few months ago. The second case was a young woman with an indurated yellowish-brown plaque with peripheral depigmentation firstly diagnosed as keloid with subsequent intralesional triamcinolone injection. The third case was a middle-aged woman with multiple ulcerated reddish-brown nodules and plaques in a linear array on both legs and one forearm (sporotrichoid pattern). The forth case was a man with a painful indurated reddish-brown plaque with yellowish crust and swelling resembling infected contact dermatitis.
