Abstract: The most convenient way of diagnosing an infectious disease is by serological methods. To improve the quality of diagnosis in leprosy, simple tests in addition to diagnosis by clinical signs, are necessary. Here, PGL-I based methods for detection of multibacillary and paucibacillary leprosy, have been revisited and newer methods are discussed.
