Hansen's disease. Practice tips for management

Hansen's disease. Practice tips for management

Australian Family Physician 23(1): 45-49

These features are often not obvious or emphasised in most texts because they are designed for a Third World scenario, where primary care is delivered without the luxury of medically trained practitioners and therefore without the option of emergency steroid therapy.
