Mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL) is endemic in rural areas of Paraguay, and mainly due to Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis. In a country where few experts and little resources are available, the means for many people to access to specialized diagnosis and verifying interpretations remain prohibitive. Telemicroscopy networks enable to overcome these limitations through remote interpretation of images and data, expert teleconsultation and proficiency testing (5-15).
