Disabilities continue to develop and increase in severity with dapsone monotherapy. This study shows the impact of MDT on disabilities. We interviewed the patients of Chiraigaon block (population,185,521) who had completed MDT under NLEP. There had been significant increase in number of patients with grade-ll and III disability during the course of MDT. This could have been reduced if regular disability examination was done. Long lag period between the onset of disease and start of MDT was an important reason for high disability rate.
