5Contributors 7Preface
This book is designed to help the undergraduate, postgraduate medical students, medical practitioners and health care providers in leprosy. I have covered all the aspects on leprosy from its historical days to the latest research. Though India is one of the few countries with high prevalence of leprosy there is paucity of books on leprosy by Indian authors and hence this attempt. This book aims to be a user-friendly guide to the postgraduate students as it incorporates many viva questions. I welcome suggestions and criticisms from the readers which may help to improve the further editions. I wish to thank M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd. for their constant efforts throughout the production of this book.
