  Purpose

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is typically treated with the parenteral product pentavalent antimony. Miltefosine is an oral agent shown to be active for mucosal leishmaniasis due to L braziliensis in Bolivia and cutaneous leishmaniasis due to L panamensis in Colombia. This trial is intended to evaluate miltefosine for cutaneous leishmaniasis due to L braziliensis in Bolivia. Patients will be randomly assigned to miltefosine or pentavalent antimony. Standard dose regimens will be used for both drugs.
