Leprosy, a chronic granulomatous infectious disease caused by acid-bacilli (AFB) resistant Mycobacterium leprae (M. leprae) mainly infects skin macrophages and Schwann cells in nerves. Thus, leprosy can be seen as two combined disorders: one characterized by a chronic infection that depends on the ability of host immune response and the other being a peripheral neuropathy which starts during infection, but with consequences which may extend for many years after cure.
