Abstract: José Carlos Gomes Sardinha 5A hanseníase possui amplo espectro de manifestações clínicas relacionadas a três processos: dano celular e tecidual em função da multiplicação e disseminação dos bacilos; resposta imune do hospedeiro; e complicações do acometimento dos nervos periféri-cos.1 Nas formas clínicas em que o hospedeiro apresenta alta resistência, o bacilo raramente é demonstrado, as lesões são bem delimitadas e em pequeno número.

However, it has been suggested to occur as a result of the action of drug-resistant mutant bacilli, or due to a decrease in cellular systemic immunity, with corresponding increase in local cellular and humoral immunity 6 .…”
