Textbook of Clinical Leprosy

by Virendra N Sehgal

This book, Textbook of Clinical Leprosy, deals with leprosy. This book, ever since its first publication in the year 1979, has continued to provide an academic access to the understanding of the unique scourge, in tropics including India. Leprosy thus is responsible for making adequate material available for research, despite Mycobacterium leprae, its incriminating organism failing to fulfill the Koch’s postulates, the major impediment being its denial to grow in vitro, thus staking the major breakthrough. It is worthwhile to take cognizance of all the parameters to facilitate its diagnosis, and subsequent treatment in right prospective to curtail the transmission of the disease. The concise facets, therefore, have been imbibed in the text to facilitate clear-cut understanding of the disease. The text of this book deals with different clinical facets of the disease which are essential for the undergraduate and also the postgraduate students. They are based on didactic lectures and clinical demonstration on leprosy, which the author has been imparting to the students for the past two decades.
