Effect Of Injection Of Hydrocortisone Into Nerves Thickened By Leprosy

Effect Of Injection Of Hydrocortisone Into Nerves Thickened By Leprosy

Leprosy Review 35: 83-85

Hydrocortisone was used on 12 patients having either lepromatous, tuberculoid and mixed types of leprosy. All had nerves thickened due to leprosy and were treated at the Kondhwa Leprosy Hospital in Poona, India. If treatment is started early then hydrocortisone is highly efficacious in preventing of curing neural deformities. This evidence confirms the results of other workers who have used this drug.
