Leprosy is chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae. Leprosy is also referred to as Hansen’s disease. Leprosy affects the skin, mucosal surfaces of the upper respiratory tract, the peripheral nerves and the eyes. Leprosy can occur to the people of all ages from infant to geriatric. The exact reason for transmission of leprosy is not known but it is strongly believed that leprosy is transferred from a leprosy patient to a healthy person. The delay diagnosis of leprosy may cause some serious complication such as muscle weakness, erectile dysfunction, kidney failure, blindness, among others. The best way to prevent leprosy is to avoid contact with infected and untreated people and do vaccination with leprosy vaccines. Leprosy is a curable disease but it takes too much time to recover, hence doctors are prescribing the leprosy vaccines to infants. Leprosy vaccine was first introduced in 1921 by Dr. Albert Calmette and Dr. Cammille Guerin. BCG vaccine is the most commonly prescribed leprosy vaccines for the prevention of leprosy among the infants.
