Abstract: It is a retrospective study in the Service of Dermatology at the University Hospital Center Yalgado Ouedraogo of Ouagadougou (C.H.U.-YO). This study aimed to list the leishmaniasis clinical cases reported in the registers of this department from January 1999 to December 2007. In total, 251 leishmaniasis clinical cases have been reported. The hospital prevalence was 1,1%. Women represented 53% versus 47% men. The average age of patients was 22,78 ans +/- 121. The most frequent clinical forms were those often crusted (40.2%), papulo ulcerative (16.7%) and papulonodular (13.9%). Lesions most often sat on the lower limbs (33%) and thoracic limbs (45%). On the therapeutic level, the first line treatment meglumine antimonite (Glucantime) accounted for only 25.9% of prescriptions.
