Description: Caption:
This image depicts a close view of an Indian man’s right face, focusing on the region of his cheek. The patient exhibited a subcutaneous inflammatory complication associated with a case of lepromatous leprosy, known as erythema nodosum (EN) leprosum, and had been caused by the bacterium, Mycobacterium leprae. Under the newer World Health Organization (WHO) standards, lepromatous leprosy has been reclassified as multibacillary (MB), leprosy.
