LEPROSY REVIEW Tuberculosis complicating Leprosy. In some countries this is a not uncommon cause of death in leper institutions. Like so many complicating diseases, tuberculosis often pro­ duces an apparent amelioration of leprous lesions.

This is probably due to its debilitating effect '. Prevention The basic intervention strategy in leprosy control is multidrug therapy (MDT; see Chapter ), given to newly found leprosy cases. Preventive interventions, other than awareness raising and health education activities, are not routinely available.

Yet it has long been argued that the elimination of leprosy cannot be achieved by a strategy based on MDT alone and. 1National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme Annual Report, 2 Socioeconomic determinants of tuberculosis infection Poverty is a major determinant of tuberculosis infection.
