Summaries for Hansen's Disease

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Hansen's disease (also known as leprosy) is a rare bacterial infection that affects the skin, nerves and mucous membranes. After exposure, it may take anywhere from 2 to 10 years to develop features of the condition. Once present, common signs and symptoms include skin lesions; muscle weakness or paralysis; eye problems that may lead to blindness; nosebleeds; severe pain; and/or numbness in the hands, feet, arms and legs. Hansen's disease is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae; however, the way in which the bacterium is transmitted (spread) is poorly understood. It appears that only about 5% of people are susceptible to the condition. Hansen's disease is easily treated with combination antibiotics for 6 months to 2 years.

MalaCards based summary : Hansen's Disease, also known as leprosy, is related to leprosy 3 and lepromatous leprosy. An important gene associated with Hansen's Disease is ERBB2 (Erb-B2 Receptor Tyrosine Kinase 2). The drugs Isoniazid and Rifampicin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and testes.
