The nasal mucosa become ulcerated and form scabs. Nevertheless, much remains to be known about the mechanism of interaction between the two diseases and further research is required.

Hansen Neuropathy: Still a Possible Diagnosis in the Investigation of a Peripheral Neuropathy.

There were tubrculoide pigmented lesions on the distal third of the hard palate; the rest of the mucosa showed a normal appearance Figures 2 and 3. Studying by a new thecnics, which he baptised before as “Lleras’ method”, the scarching of the agent of leprosy in tuberculoid cases, by examination of sub-corium lymph leepra from the lesion, he discovered new forms of the Hansen bacillus, which describes briefly, arriving at the following conclusions: Quinolones, such as ofloxacin and pefloxacin, as well as some macrolides, such as clarithromycin and minocyclin are also effective 6.

Secretion cultures from the ulcers on the lower extremities right trochanter and head of the left fibula were positive for Staphylococcus aureus. Lepromatous rhinitis may spread to the maxilla and be complicated by secondary pyogenic infections. Current Syntheses and Future Options.

Multiple amputations bilateral metacarpophalangeal, left metatarsophalangeal and nose due to relapsing infection of the septum, performed during the active phase of the disease Figure 1 secondary to the leprous infection. In addition to the facial lesions described above it is common to find multiple skin macules in cooler areas of the body extremities, buttocks.


The mean age at diagnosis was 52 years, and sensory symptoms predominate as neurological manifestation of disease. The deep infections lead to perforation of the septum, and their spreading to the surface of the hard palate may cause periostitis that is visible on X-rays.

Patients with lepromatous tuberculiode are highly infectious, although most exposed immunocompetent individuals do not contract the disease. This is treated with NPH insulin. Int J Lepr other Mycobact Dis ; This rhinomaxillary syndrome only corresponds to the lepromatous form of leprosy 7which is that suffered by the patient described here Figure 1 and, most likely, was what affected his close relatives.

Int J Epidemiol The disease presents polar clinical forms the “multibacillary” lepromatous leprosy and the “paucibacillary” tuberculoid leprosyas well as other intermediate forms with hybrid characteristics.
