The review describes how Leishmaniasis is a perplexing infection with cutaneous, mucocutaneous, or instinctive signs relying upon the parasite species and host invulnerability. In spite of proceeded with end endeavors, leishmaniasis keeps on besetting known and more current endemic districts, where 0.5–0.9 million new instances of instinctive leishmaniasis (VL) and 0.6–1.0 million new instances of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) happen each year (1). An increment in VL and CL cases from more up to date foci and abnormal sickness sign represent a test to leishmaniasis control programs (2–7). Dissimilar to the known species-explicit illness aggregate, parasite variations can cause abnormal sickness, so Leishmania species for the most part connected with VL can cause CL and the other way around.

In India, VL brought about by L. donovani parasites in the northeastern area and CL brought about by L. tropica in the western Thar Desert address the predominant types of the sickness (2). Himachal Pradesh is an all the more as of late leishmaniasis-endemic state in northwest where VL and CL coincide; CL occurrence is higher than VL rate and most cases are owing to L. donovani rather than L. tropica disease (8,9). Sharma et al. directed restricted atomic investigation of a couple of CL cases and announced starter discoveries (8). For an inside and out investigation on the association of L. donovani parasites in CL cases, we directed an extensive atomic examination of CL cases in Himachal Pradesh.
