Ravindranathan O, Sarojini P A. Comparative Study of Leprom114 Reaction in Indeterminate Leprosy and Controls. Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 1988;54:24-26
AbstractLepromin test (LT) was done on 100 cases of indeterminate leprosy (IL) and in 100, age and sex matched controls. LT was negative in 98% of IL, but positive in 80% of the controls. Lepromin positive cases showed a tuberculoid picture histopathologically, though the clinical picture was that of IL. There was no co-relation between Fernandez reaction and Mitsuda reaction.
