AbstractSix cases of familial acro-osteolysis in 15 members of 3 generations of a family are reported. Their pedigrees traced followed an autosomal dominant pattern. Five of these patients were wrongly labeled as patients of leprosy and treated with dapsone monotherapy for variable periods without any benefit. Awareness and differentiation of acro-osteolysis from leprosy is emphasized.
