The authors present a clinical report of deforming mucocutaneous leishmaniasis of the nose in a native American woman, left untreated for 25 years. The nose was reconstructed using the local tissue displaced as flaps, and using cartilage grafts taken from the nasal septum and the ear shell. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, the literature offers just 1 report on a similar patient.
