Leprosy is an infectious disease that causes severe, disfiguring skin sores and nerve damage in the arms, legs, and skin areas around the body. The disease has been around since ancient times.
Detecting the clinical features of leprosy in a patient requires a meticulous approach. The presen-tation is subtle in many patients, especially in the indeterminate and tuberculoid portions of the spectrum.
The patient should be fully exposed and observed under adequate lighting to detect the clinical signs of leprosy. The goals of surgical treatment in patients with leprosy are to prevent further deterioration, to improve motor function, and, in some cases, to improve sensation.
Preoperative requirements First, a full sensory and motor appraisal with functional and occupational assessment must be completed to determine the extent of damage.
Use clothes or canvas gloves for protection. Care of feet-clean & soak in salt water for 15 min. Rub off hard skin with water. Rest the swollen foot by elevation. Regular dressing helps to heal simple ulcer. Use MCR (micro-cellular rubber insole) footwear to prevent injuries.

Affected nerves are markedly thickened and exhibit abscesses. The condition may be associated with high fever. It is the most common leprosy reaction and occurs in up to 30 % of patients with borderline tuberculoid (BT), borderline borderline (BB) and borderline lepromatous leprosy (BL), usually within twelve months after treatment initiation.
