Leprosy-Borderline Lepromatous (BL) It pains to see delay in diagnosis of most of the leprosy patients. Apart from side effects of MDT he may get TYPE II reaction during the medication. Take help of Leprosy Clinic or Leprologist near by place. Worth examining family members and near by community members for detecting and treating leprosy cases in early stages.
