Leishmaniasis is an infectious disease caused by protozoa of the genus Leishmania. This disease is responsible for a wide range of morbidity and mortality.
Parasites of the genus Leishmania cause a spectrum of diseases ranging from self-healing ulcers to disseminate and often fatal visceral diseases, depending on the parasite species transmitted, intrinsic resistance to drugs and mechanisms immune mediated, such as the production of oxygen and nitrogen reactive species (Convit et al., 1993; Garcia-Hernandez et al., 2012; McMahon-Pratt and Alexander, 2004).
Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a parasitic disease caused by various species of genus Leishmania and transmitted by bites of sandfly.

Leishmaniasis, one of the most neglected tropical diseases with current high worldwide incidence (Homsi and Makdisi, 2010) caused by infection of protozoa of the genus Leishmania (Garcia-Almagro, 2005), in their various forms appear to be emerging globally (Ashford, 2000; Desjeux, 2001).

American cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) is an zoonotic disease caused by protozoa of the genus Leishmania. Infections in humans may either be non-apparent or may display a clinical spectrum ranging from localized, sometimes self-healing cutaneous lesions, to severe mutilating mucocutaneous lesions, or diffuse cutaneous leishmaniasis (AKILOV et al., 2007).
