Abstract

We describe a patient with widespread borderline tuberculoid leprosy and significant peripheral nerve involvement. Despite the presence of widespread lesions, Fite stains and polymerase chain reaction studies were initially negative. We discuss the diagnosis and treatment of leprosy including recent changes in treatment regimens and duration.
