In brief: Tissue damage

Mucosal leishmaniasis can occur with untreated or poorly treated cutaneous lesions (or simultaneously with cutaneous lesions).
It can lead to nasal congestion and nose bleeds & eventually can destroy tissue of the nose and throat.

In brief: Tissue destruction

Mucocutaneous leishmaniasis can cause destruction of the tissue and deformities.
You should have it treated and not wait to look for tissue damage.
