MATSUO, Christiane et al. Borderline lepromatous leprosy. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.6, pp.921-922. ISSN 1806-4841.

It is presented a case of borderline lepromatous leprosy with 4 years of evolution and cutaneous lesions of difficult diagnosis in the National Health System. The histopathological evaluation, which was essential for the diagnosis, showed disorganized granulomatous structures and multiple alcohol -acid resistant bacilli. Cases like the one described here are responsible for the contamination of cohabitants and the appearance of new cases of leprosy.

Keywords : Leprosy; Leprosy, bordeline; Leprosy, lepromatous.
