Topics Discussed in This Paper. Andersen JG, Manchester K. This was not the case of the patient reported here, who maintained sensitivity. This notion of cross reactions is not lspromatosa, although it is better documented in examples of humoral rather than cell immunity.

This invasion usually occurs indirectly, via lesions in the surrounding soft tissues or, less often, via the blood. Blood tests upon admission corroborated the anaemic state and the hepatic and renal alterations indicated previously. International Journal of Osteoarchaelogy ; 2: Although both leprosy and tuberculosis were more common in the past they have never completely disappeared, as is illustrated by numerous publications throughout history.

From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. Weekly Epidemiological Record22 May. Without anti-leprosy treatment since due to negativization. The diagnosis, based on clinical suspicion, is confirmed through bacteriological and histopathological analyses, as well as by means of the lepromin test intradermal reaction that is usually negative in lepromatous leprosy form and positive in the tuberculoid form.

Electron microscopy of ultra-thin sections of lepra cells and Mycobacterium leprae. However, those which settle in the internal organs are usually effectively eliminated by macrophages. The reason for the different immune response of the two clinical forms remains unclear. The phalanx and metacarpal or metatarsal bones are often affected, with marked shortening that may leave only a stump 1.

He was advised to see a dental specialist in order to have the root remains removed, and it was explained to him that having full dental prostheses upper and lower fitted would help restore his masticatory function.

The differential diagnosis includes systemic lupus erythematosus, sarcoidosis, cutaneous leishmaniasis and other skin diseases, tertiary syphilis, cicatricial pemphigoid, lethal midline granuloma, lymphomas, systemic mycosis, traumatic lesions and malignant neoplasias, as well as peripheral nerve pathology such as syringomyelia, among other disorders 2,6.

The rhinomaxillary syndrome in leprosy: Microtomy Fallopia multiflora plant. Multiple amputations bilateral metacarpophalangeal, left metatarsophalangeal and nose due to relapsing infection of the septum, performed during the active phase of the disease Figure 1 secondary to the leprous infection.

The disease presents polar clinical forms the “multibacillary” lepromatous leprosy and the “paucibacillary” tuberculoid leprosyas well as other intermediate lepromqtosa with hybrid characteristics Table 1.

The electron microscopic basis of the pathology of leprosy. The nasal secretions are literally teeming with leprous bacilli, and hence airborne dissemination, via sneezing, would seem to be the most likely way for leprosy to be spread nowadays.

The differential diagnosis includes systemic lupus erythematosus, sarcoidosis, cutaneous leishmaniasis and other skin diseases, tertiary syphilis, lymphomas, systemic mycosis, traumatic lesions and malignant neoplasias, among other disorders. Under these circumstances the clinical form begins to acquire certain lepromatous characteristics, with aspects of BL, the intermediate form or, more rarely, BT.

Electron microscopic analysis of the components of lepra cells. Clinical aspects of leprosy. Lepromatous leprosy usually begins in the form of chronic rhinitis.

Leprous patients with a positive Mitsuda reaction usually present a histological tissue reaction similar to that found in tuberculosis, and hence the name give to this clinical form is tuberculoid leprosy. This consists in the intradermal injection of lepromin extract of the leprous bacillus taken from sick patients.
