Description: Caption:
This photomicrograph reveals some of the classic histopathologic changes found in a skin section extracted from an individual with a case of leprosy, which may have been the tuberculoid form of the disease, though this is questionable. Depicted here, was a nerve, which had been surrounded by a dense infiltrate, consisting of undifferentiated histiocytes and large numbers of lymphocytes. The nerve sheath was also infiltrated, and the endoneural region of the nerve was infiltrated as well. This neural involvement was found to be independent of any pathology of the upper corium.
