Three cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis with unusual presentation seen at Central Hospital Tripoli, Libya are described. Case No. 1 and 2 had 102 and 109 noduloulcerative lesions with generalized almost bilaterally symmetrical distribution, suggestive of dissemination. Case No. 3 had large verrucous carcinoma but histopathology suggested lupoid (chronic cutaneous) leishmaniasis. Patient No. 2 developed hypersensitivity reaction to sodium stibogluconate after 10 days but responded well to the treatment. Case No. 2 did not tolerate the above treatment and was treated successfully with combination of rifampicin and INH. Case No. 3 was treated successfully with liquid nitrogen cryotherapy by Cryosurg-Frigitonics, using special open probes.
