Abstract Leprosy is a debilitating infectious disease of human skin and nerves. Genetic factors of the host play an important role in the manifestation of disease susceptibility. The human NRAMP1 gene is a leprosy susceptibility candidate locus since its murine homologue Nramp1 (formerly Lsh/Ity/Bcg) controls innate resistance to Mycobacterium lepraemurium. In this study, 168 members of 20 multiplex leprosy families were genotyped for NRAMP1 alleles and 4 closely linked polymorphic markers. Highly informative haplotypes overlapping the NRAMP1 gene were constructed, and the haplotype segregation into leprosy-affected offspring was analyzed. It was observed that the segregation of NRAMP1 haplotypes into affected siblings was significantly nonrandom. This finding is consistent with the hypothesis that NRAMP1 itself is a leprosy susceptibility locus.
