An unusual presentation of lepromatous leprosy: a case report



An unusual presentation of lepromatous leprosy: a case report



Medical Journal Armed Forces India 46(3): 221-222



A 23-year-old Indian man presented with several painful and tender keloid plaques over pressure points of knee, elbow and shoulder joints. There were no clinical signs suggestive of leprosy, and unaffected skin appeared normal. Slit-skin smears from the lesions contained enormous numbers of "lepra bacilli", but a smear from unaffected skin, and others from nasal mucosa, were negative.
