Four dogs infected with Leishmania had proliferative lesions on the mucosae of the penis, tongue, oral cavity, prepuce, or nose. These mucosal, nodular lesions produced by parasites of the genus Leishmania have not been described previously in the dog. Leishmaniasis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of tumor-like lesions of mucous membranes.
