leprosy

Posted By Dax on May 11, 1997 at 14:57:15:









I have been researching the topic of leprosy for an OAC
course but have had trouble finding the exact cause of
its disfuguring traits.  Aside from the fact its caused
by Mycobacterium leprae which effects the axons I have no
information in how it damages the nerves.  Could
someone email me as to how it causes this paralysis? Is
it the result of inflamation (inflammation) only?
