AbstractA 40-year old male presented with typical features of leprosy borderline tuberculoid (BT) type. During the course of treatment, he developed neurological features which were initially attributed to neuritis. However, these features progressed despite antileprosy treatment. Detailed investigations revealed compressive myelopathy due to cervical canal stenosis. He was managed successfully with appropriate surgical treatment.
