The parasite is transmitted to the human by the bite of infected female sand fly. The hallmark of the disease (observed in 70% of the cases) is the presence of numerous amastigotes within the histiocytes and extracellular. Aim of study: To study the sociodemographic change of cutaneouse leishmaniasis in Sulaimani city and histopathological changes in cutaneouse leishmaniasis. Patients & Methods: This is descriptive study conducted in dermatology center in Sulaimani from November of 2014 to Jun of 2015 in which 158 patient taken with cutaneous leishmaniasis diagnosed clinically by two dermatology specialist.
