Tuberculosis and Leprosy

Some people are genetically resistant to leprosy, probably and no matter what, they do not get leprosy. Other with tuberculous type of leprosy have high resistance to leprosy. Those with lepromatous type of leprosy have least resistance to leprosy germs. The intermediate leprosy type have intermediate resistance to leprosy germs. Body reacts to leprosy by trying to kill the leprosy causing germs. There is an inflammatory response.
About 50% of patients diagnosed with the disease have a history of close contact with an infected family member.
If it goes untreated the hands and feet get distorted, faces can also get disfigured from leprosy, eye problems even blindness, nerve damage, and muscle weakness, there is also pain associated with leprosy. People that get it some times can't walk or take care of them selves properly, some of them can't work. People that contract it are often rejected or abandond by their family and or loved ones. But if leprosy is diagnosed and treated early then many of the symptoms can be prevented.
