Proposed revision of the memorial conference classification 793
A.Primary classification 794Neural (N) type; cutaneous (C) type
1.General, by degree of advancement 794Neural; cutaneous; “mixed”; “secondary neural”
2.Special, by other features 796Varieties of cutaneous leprosy; principal varieties of neural; varieties of macules; indication of original phase, of secondary neural cases, of bacteriological status, of progress of the disease; atypical and special cases; special forms
Until recently the basis and terminology used in classifying the forms and varieties of leprosy was determined very largely by individual choice, and this highly important matter was correspondingly confused.
