Detection of bacillemia in 40 untreated cases of leprosy was carried out by buffy coat. haemolysis and Petroff's concentration method. Bacillemiawas detected in 17 (42.5%) cases by Petroff's method. Out of 20 LL-BL cases, it was positive in 16 (80%) patients. Petroff's and haemolysis methods revealed bacillemia in 100% and 90% of LL cases respectively. The Petroff's method of concentration was found superior over the other techniques for better detection and quantitatioxi of bacffemia. A significant relationship between the bacillary load (BI) in the skin and the degree of bacillemia was observed especially in the lepromatous part of the spectrum of the dise4se.
