Title: Leprosy


A patient of Lepromatous Leprosy visited our OPD with symptoms of Erythema Nodosum Leprosum (ENL). He also complained of blurring of vision, redness and photophobia. Ophthalmology opinion was taken for his eye symptoms. On examination, changes in anterior chamber and fundus were noticed. He was diagnosed with anterior uveitis and central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR). CSCR is a rare complication of type 2 reaction in leprosy. In such patients, systemic steroids can worsen this condition, hence steroids should be used judiciously with regular follow-ups and frequent eye examination.
