Abstract

Leprosy is a rare event during pregnancy. A high index of suspicion is needed for prompt diagnosis, and a multidisciplinary approach is required for proper management. Multidrug therapy (MDT) is safe and effective during pregnancy and lactation. Hereby, we are reporting a case of lepromatous leprosy with erythema nodosum leprosum (type II lepra reaction) during the third trimester of pregnancy.
