Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Leprosy:
This chronic infectious disease
usually affects the skin and peripheral nerves but has a wide
range of possible clinical manifestations. Patients are classified
as having paucibacillary or multibacillary Hansen's disease.
Paucibacillary Hansen's disease is milder and characterized
by one or more hypopigmented skin macules. Multibacillary
Hansen's disease is associated with symmetric skin lesions,
nodules, plaques, thickened dermis, and frequent involvement
of the nasal mucosa resulting in nasal congestion and epistaxis. (Source: excerpt from Hansen's Disease (Leprosy): DBMD)
