Abstract

Leprosy is a granulomatous disease affecting the skin and nerves caused by Mycobacterium leprae. It continues to be a significant public health problem. Despite multidrug therapy, immunologic reactions continue to occur, leading to disability and deformity due to neuropathy. It is important that dermatologists are aware of the neurologic as well as the skin manifestations of the condition so that nerve involvement can be identified and treated rapidly.
