Background. Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a serious public health problem in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Treatment of CL can prevent disfiguring scars. Aim. The efficacy of local heat therapy by radiofrequency (RF) was compared with intralesional injection of meglumine antimoniate in the treatment of CL. Methods. This was a randomized clinical trial.
