Sudden changes in immune-mediated response to Mycobacterium leprae antigen are referred to as leprosy reactions. The reactions manifest as acute inflammatory episodes rather than chronic infectious course. There are mainly two types of leprosy reactions. Type 1 reaction is associated with cellular immunity and particularly with the reaction of T helper 1 (Th1) cells to . David Weedon AO MD FRCPA FCAP(HON), in Weedon's Skin Pathology (Third Edition), TUBERCULOSIS. Typical tuberculoid granulomas can be seen in the dermal inflammatory reaction of late primary inoculation tuberculosis, late miliary tuberculosis, tuberculosis cutis orificialis, tuberculosis verrucosa cutis (‘prosector's wart’), scrofuloderma, and lupus vulgaris. .
Lesions exhibit tuberculoid features histologically but do not contain detectable mycobacteria, although organisms may be detected with methods such as polymerase chain reaction. Tuberculid reactions represent the paucibacillary pole of disease. 25 Rapid local destruction may account for the absence of bacilli in lesions. Leprosy is a chronic bacterial infection with Mycobacterium leprae. It primarily affects the skin, mucous membranes (eg, nose), peripheral nervous system (nerve function), eyes and testes. The form the disease takes depends on the person's immune response to the infection. Leprosy is also known as Hansen disease and is one of the oldest known. Paradoxical Upgrading Reactions • Worsening of symptoms during treatment (ie, paradoxical upgrading reaction [PUR]). • One definition is the development of enlarging nodes, new nodes, or a new draining sinus in patients who have received at least 10 days of treatment. • PUR has been reported in 20%–23% of HIV-negative patients.
