Leprosy

Drug nameGeneric NameCoupon

Leprosy is an infection caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae. Patients typically present themselves with symptoms affecting the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract – usually in the form of granulomas. It may be contracted through coughing and sneezing, as well as through any form of contact with nasal secretions from an infected individual. The infection is curable, with patients put on drugs such as rifampicin, dapsone and clofazimine. Treatment typically lasts for between 6 and 12 months, depending on the strain of bacteria involved. Currently, India has the most cases of newly diagnosed leprosy, followed by Brazil and Myanmar.
