Abstract

Abstract.

Type 1 reactions, characterized by increasing lesion erythema, pain, and nerve damage, commonly complicate leprosy. Dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome (DHS) is a potentially fatal reaction occurring 6–8 weeks into dapsone therapy. We present a case of intercurrent Type 1 reaction and DHS in a multibacillary leprosy patient recently started on multidrug treatment.
