Differential Diagnosis


More than five years history of skin-colored firm papules and nodules involved many parts of the body in symmetrical way. However, the face had the most striking features in form of general leonine waxy appearance, loss of the eyebrows (madarosis) and eyelashes, and large number of ill-defined skin-colored nodular infiltrations. Skin biopsy revealed typical histological features of lepromatous leprosy.
