CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. D. LL
Lucio’s phenomenon is an unusual reaction seen exclusively in patients who have the diffuse lepromatosis form of lepromatous leprosy, most often those who are untreated. It is characterized by painful irregular patches that become pruritic and form bullae that break down, leaving widespread areas of ulceration. Lucio’s phenomenon arise due to cutaneous vasculitis. Erythema nodosum leprosum (ENL) occur exclusively in patients near the lepromatous end of the leprosy spectrum (BL/LL), affecting nearly 50% of this group.
Which of the following statement regarding Erythema nodosum leprosum is TRUE?
Occur in patients with BL/LL
Painful erythematous papules are most common
TNF may play a central role in the pathobiology
All of the above
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. D. All of the above
Erythema nodosum leprosum occurs exclusively in patients near the lepromatous end of the leprosy spectrum (BL/LL). The most common features of ENL are crops of painful erythematous papules that resolve spontaneously in a few days to a week, but may recur. Elevated levels of circulating TNF have been demonstrated in ENL, thus, TNF may play a central role in the pathobiology of this syndrome.
