Abstract

So far as the writers are aware, no autopsy reports on early leprosy in very young children of leprous parents have been recorded. Most of the available reports of the disease in children concern clinical cases; those which have been found are summarized below. The present case is placed on record because of the unusual circumstance that the child died and was autopsied at the early age of a little over 17 months, only two months after the infection was discovered. A detailed study of the autopsy material has been made to determine the possible manner of infection.
