Rights and Permissions

There is paucity of data regarding studies on leprosy and HIV/AIDS co-infection. We present a case of lepromatous leprosy in a known HIV/AIDS patient that presented with chronic leg ulcers. This case report is presented because of its rarity and the fact that physicians managing HIV/AIDS patients are likely to miss leprosy in such patients due to the decreasing prevalence of leprosy worldwide. Informed written consent was obtained from the patient for the purpose of this study.
