Abstract
Dapsone resistant patients treated with clofazimine 100 mg daily show a consistent response to treatment. Concern is expressed regarding the prolonged persistence of viable organisms during treatment, with the attendant risk of further resistance developing. The importance of prevention of this problem is discussed.
