B. S. N Reddy, A Parthasarathi, MA Sait
In a retrospective analysis of 971 patients, the mean age at onset of the is recorded to be 24.1 years. Sex had no, influence on the age-at-onset of leprosy. However, a atatistically significant variation was noted between the type of leprosy and, the at-onset, it was the lowest (19.2 years) in indeterminate and highest (31.08 years) in neuritic leprosy. Our . ob serrations lend support to the prevailing concept that the ageat-onset of leprosy not only varies from one country to another but also indifferent parts of the same country.
