The purpose of this study is to determine the extent of nerve involvement and to study the effect of corticosteroids combined with multidrug therapy on nerve damage in leprosy patients using sensory and motor nerve conduction studies. A cohort of 365 untreated multibacillary leprosy patients were prospectively studied using sensory and motor nerve conduction studies on upper and lower limb nerves. They were subgrouped as those to be treated with 12-week regimen of corticosteroids for reaction… CONTINUE READING
