Some aspects of clinical and epidemiological presentation of 172 non-lepromatous leprosy patients, belonging to the Armed Forces of India, have been presented. Tuberculoid type (TT) was the commonest form of the disease. Majority of the patients (59.8%) had a single lesion at the time of diagnosis. Age of onset of 62.2% of the patients was between 20 and 29 years. Incidence of gross neurological deficit or deformity was rather low in these patients. Ulnar nerve involvement showed evidence of clinical symptom most often.
