A 42 year old male from Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh presented with a subcutaneous nodule in the submandibular region. It was 2x3 cm in size, firm, mobile and non-tender. Lymphadenitis and sialadenitis were kept as differential diagnosis. Fine-needle aspiration revealed Leishman Donovan (L-D) bodies along with non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas. We are presenting this report for its rarity.
