Post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis can present as hypopigmented macules, erythematous to skin-coloured papules, nodules and photosensitive butterfly erythema on the face. We present a patient with disseminated annular lesions of post-kala-azar dermal leishamaniasis. The patient was treated with daily intravenous injections of sodium antimony gluconate for 120 days at a dose of 20 mg/kg body weight with complete clearance of lesions.
