Abstract

RAIOL, Theisla Kely Azevedo et al. Atypical lesions in relapsed leprosy. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2014, vol.89, n.5, pp.808-811. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20142989.

Relapsed cases of leprosy are not common in patients treated regularly with the recommended polychemotherapeutical schemes. Relapses must be readily identified and distinguished from reactions. This article reports a clinical case of relapse in leprosy, with atypical and exuberant skin changes in patient treated for eleven years with a paucibacillary scheme.

Keywords : Case reports; Leprosy, multibacillary; Recurrence.
