BARBOSA JR, Aryon de Almeida et al. Leprosy combined with elastolytic granuloma. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2002, vol.77, n.5, pp.585-592. ISSN 0365-0596.

Two cases of leprosy combined with elastolytic giant cell granuloma are reported. Though a coincidental occurrence cannot be excluded, a possible pathogenetic relationship between the two conditions is postulated. It is possible that an immunological mechanism plays a role in the elastolytic process, which could also be caused by actinic damage in the skin altered by leprosy.

Keywords : Granuloma; leprosy.
