There is a lot of history in this book. I did not know that people in the U.S. could have leprosy and that there was a leper colony in Carville the s.4/5(9). Today, the diagnosis and treatment of leprosy also is often impeded by a lack of knowledge and awareness in the healthcare community.

This textbook attempts to address the deficiency. The International Textbook of Leprosy is dedicated to the physicians and health workers caring for their first patient with leprosy.

Introduction Leprosy, which is caused by the Mycobacterium leprae (see Chapter ), is a disease of low contagion that presents with protean manifestations. In its usual presentation, it is a chronic disease whose slow clinical progression is often punctuated by hypersensitivity reactions (lepra reactions; see Chapter ).

The disease ranges from a singular patch or single. Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae, a microorganism that has a predilection for the skin and disease is clinically characterized by one or more of the three cardinal signs: hypopigmented or erythematous skin patches with definite loss of sensation, thickened peripheral nerves, and acid-fast bacilli detected on.

The geographic distribution of the leprosy bacillus is another mystery. Some scientists suspect that the organism exists in the soil in many parts of the world, but, again, because it cannot be grown in a laboratory culture, the only evidence of its presence in a given region is the appearance of the disease itself in humans or other animals that are susceptible to it.

What is leprosy. • Leprosy (also known Hansen’s Disease) is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae which involves the skin and peripheral nerves. History of leprosy • Leprosy was recognized in the ancient civilizations of China, Egypt and India.

Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease (HD), is a long-term infection by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae or Mycobacterium lepromatosis. Infection can lead to damage of the nerves, respiratory tract, skin, and eyes.

This nerve damage may result in a lack of ability to feel pain, which can lead to the loss of parts of a person's extremities from repeated injuries or infection due to unnoticed. For centuries, people suffering from certain symptoms were branded as "lepers" and became societal outcasts.

Eventually, a man named Hansen was able to discover a treatment, and what became known as Hansen's disease was all but wiped out. This book charts the history of the disease, describes the stigma attached to leprosy, explains the science involved in finding a cure, and covers the World.

Multibacillary leprosy should be treated with a combination of rifampicin, dapsone and clofazimine for at least 2 years. Treatment should be continued unchanged during both type I (reversal) or type II (erythema nodosum leprosum) reactions.
