DEFINITION

Chronic infectious communicable disease caused by Myco.leprae, mainly characterized by lesions in skin and/or polyneuritic changes due to involvement of and damage to the peripheral nerve trunks.
Hansen disease is caused by a bacillus, Mycobacterium leprae, first described by G. Amauer Hansen, MD, of Norway in 1874, which multiplies very slowly and mainly affects the skin, nerves, and mucous membranes.
Incubation in humans ranges from 6 months to 8 years, and the bacilli are believed to enter the body through the skin or mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract. The extent of involvement and the type of manifestation after infection depend on the immune response of the host and may consist of complete resistance, no disease, incomplete resistance, and the indeterminate, which can progress to the other forms
