Lupoid leishmaniasis --> leishmaniasis recidivans

a partially healing leishmanial lesion caused by leishmania tropica and characterised by an extreme form of cellular immune response, intense granuloma production, fibrinoid necrosis without caseation, and frequent development of satellite lesions that continue the production of granulomatous tissue without healing, sometimes over a period of many years; organisms are difficult to demonstrate but can be cultured.

Synonym: lupoid leishmaniasis.
