* 5%, tuberculoid leprosy-10.2%, indeterminate leprosy
Of these, 13 presented indeterminate leprosy
(IL), 15 presented tuberculoid leprosy (TT), and 15 presented lepromatous leprosy (LL).
Data are shown as per cent of patients within each Ridey-Jopling classification (LL; lepromatous leprosy; BL, borderline lepromatous; BB, borderline borderline; BT, borderline tuberculoid; TT, true tuberculoid; IL, indeterminate leprosy
Sections showing scattered nonspecific lyphohistiocytic infiltration with cellular reaction within dermal nerve or presence of bacilli in subepidermal zone/arrector pilorum muscle/dermal nerve were classified as indeterminate leprosy
Borderline tuberculoid leprosy was the most frequent morphologic type, seen in 56.3 per cent followed by borderlineborderline ( 1.5 per cent), borderline lepromatous ( 24.9 per cent), lepromatous leprosy ( 8.1 per cent), pure neuritic ( 8.1 per cent), histoid and indeterminate leprosy
( 0.5 per cent each).
It is remarkable that all cases classified as indeterminate leprosy
presented no physical deformities at diagnosis.
Concomitant kala-azar, malaria and progressive unstable indeterminate leprosy
in an 8-year-old-child.
TT = Tuberculoid; BT= Borderline Tuberculoid; BB = Borderline Borderline; BL= Borderline Lepromatous, LL = Lepromatous, IL= Indeterminate Leprosy
observed that indeterminate leprosy
(IL) patients manifested typical leprosy granulomas post-treatment.
2 (4%) cases belonged to this group on histopathology.
We also considered indeterminate leprosy
or our study.
Five percent of babies born from mothers with active leprosy had self-healing indeterminate leprosy
under the age of 2 years, and also anti-M.
