Abstract:
Leprosy is a widespread infectious and contagious disease. It is viewed as a systemic infection, since, in its manifestations, it mimics many conditions. There are few studies that characterize the factors associated with ulcers in leprosy. These injuries should be prevented and treated promptly to avoid serious problems like secondary infections, sepsis, carcinomatous degeneration and amputations. We describe a patient with leg ulcer, involving late diagnosis of lepromatous leprosy.
