Abstract

ABSTRACT Hansen disease (leprosy) continues to be prevalent in some regions of Africa, Asia, and South America, and each year 100 to 300 cases are reported in the United States, especially in immigrants and patients exposed to armadillos. Treatment depends on patient presentation. Hansen disease remains highly stigmatized, though it is now clear that it is not readily transmitted through casual physical contact.
