Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a parasitic skin infection that is considered by doctors to be one of the worst skin diseases in developing countries. The disease is caused by parasites transmitted by infected sandflies. Sahienshadebie Ramdas describes and analyses the help-seeking behaviour of patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis in Suriname – where the disease is prevalent in rural areas – from a medical-anthropological perspective.
