Lepra Lepromatosa is a type of Leprosy. Leprosy is a
progressive, chronic infectious skin disease caused by the bacteria
Mycobacterium leprae. This disease affects the nerves that are located
outside the central nervous system (peripheral nerves), and the skin,
mucous membranes, and eyes. In severe cases of leprosy, loss of
sensation, disfigurement, and/or blindness may occur. There is a myth
that this disease is highly contagious but this is not true.
You can catch it only if you come into close and repeated contact with
nose and mouth droplets from someone with untreated leprosy.
