Forgotten, but not Gone - Leprosy Still Present in the U.S.: Long believed to be a disease of biblical times, leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease, continues to be seen in the United States. Because many of the population in the U.S. affected by leprosy are immigrants in poor communities who primarily seek treatment in free clinics or emergency rooms, the National Hansen's Disease Program says that many of those physicians are not familiar with the disease to make an accurate diagnosis. Therefore, many physicians mistake the skin lesions of leprosy for a fungus or ringworm and treat it with a topical cream. As leprosy moves toward internal regions of the U.S., it becomes more urgent to reach those physicians to let them know about the symptoms of this disease. Because leprosy is a slow-progressing disease, it can take months, before the doctor or patient realizes the treatment isn't working giving the disease enough time to start destroying the nervous system. Presenter: James Krahenbuhl, Ph.D., director of the Health Resources Service Administration's National Hansen's Disease Program in Baton Rouge, LA.
