Leprosy remains a public health problem in Brazil. Every health professional at the primary health care level should be able to detect all presentation forms of leprosy. We report the case of a multibacillary patient with unusual lesions, whose diagnosis was important to interfere in the transmission chain. Diagnosis and adequate treatment contribute to reach the leprosy elimination goal in our country.
