Cutaneous leishmaniasis was clinically diagnosed by non-healing skin lesions present on dorsal surface of nose (Snout) and outer surface of ear and by making impression smear from lesions. One per cent Berberine sulphate inoculated intralesionally on four occasions at weekly interval was found to be highly effective against cutaneous leishmaniasis in domestic dogs.
