IAL Textbook of Leprosy

by Hemanta Kumar Kar, Bhushan Kumar

Leprosy is an extremely fascinating subject whether from the point of view of basic sciences such as molecular biology, clinical sciences such as nerve damage, and public health sciences such as epidemiology, rehabilitation sciences such as reconstructive surgery or social sciences such as stigmatization. The specializations in these areas have continued to flourish over the years irrespective of the size of the problem getting reduced in numerical terms in different parts of the world and in India. The initiative taken by IAL to bring out this textbook is timely at a juncture when such updated scientific works are not available for the purpose of training of leprosy scientists. A great deal of time and effort has gone into this book as one could see while going through it and compiling and editing a multi-author book with all the updated material, covering all aspects of leprosy is no mean task. This important textbook reaches not only the members of IAL but also all the dermatologists, libraries and postgraduate students with a strong interest in leprosy. The publication of this textbook by the sixty-year old IAL is indeed a signal achievement made possible through the efforts of several interested persons lead by Prof Hemanta Kumar Kar.
