Leprosy

Leprosy or Hansen disease is a progressive and slow infection of the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae. It is inhaled and phagocytosed by macrophages in the lungs from where it spreads to the blood, but later settles in the peripheral cooler structures like the skin. Leprosy can be divided into two major categories- tuberculoid leprosy and lepromaous leprosy.
