With the invent of smart phones, tele-dermatology has become a cheap and cost-effective medium to provide medical services to rural population. Its usefulness is more prominently noted during the COVID 19 pandemic and much more in countries with difficult terrain with limited specialist health providers. Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a neglected tropical disease which may cause significant disability if treatment is delayed.
