Lepra--stadig aktuel i Danmark

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

A case of borderline tuberculoid leprosy in a 27 year old woman from the Philippines is presented. The diagnosis was made after repeated biopsies. Only a single mycobacterium was present and the histology of the initial biopsies was inconclusive. This case emphasizes that leprosy is still imported to Denmark, and that the diagnosis is often difficult and delayed for years.
