We report the successful treatment of cutaneous leishmaniasis in a 6-year-old girl who presented with a solitary lesion on the cheek. A low dose of 3 mg/kg/day of fluconazole was used, with remarkable improvement at 6 weeks and complete regression at 12 weeks, excellent cosmetic results, and no relapse during a follow-up of 1 year.
