What Is Leprosy

 

Leprosy causes skin sores that are severe and disfiguring, nerve damage in arms, legs, and any skin area around the body. The infection results in lesions in the body, which are flat, red and irregular in shape. Destruction in nerves leads to sensory loss. Gangrene may also follow.

It is an infectious disease. You can catch leprosy if you come into repeated and close contact with mouth and nose droplets from a patient with untreated leprosy. Children are more susceptible to infection than adults.

Leprosy is curable, though deformities caused due to leprosy often can’t be reversed.

What Is Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis is a contagious disease, which is induced by the bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The lungs are commonly affected by tuberculosis (TB), but it may also involve other body parts as well. When the infection does not show symptoms, it is called latent tuberculosis. Almost 10% of latent tuberculosis cases develop into an active disease. If it is not treated, then 50% of the untreated cases can turn fatal.

Tuberculosis is transmitted via air. When people infected with active tuberculosis sneeze, spit, cough, or speak, they spread the infection. People suffering from latent tuberculosis cannot be contagious. Risk of active tuberculosis is more in the people who smoke or are affected by HIV/AIDS. Active tuberculosis can be diagnosed with the help of body fluid’s culture test, microscopic examination, and chest x-ray. Latent tuberculosis is diagnosed with the help of a blood test, or the tuberculin skin test.

The complication of tuberculosis includes chronic and non-chronic issues, death, in addition to severe liver, kidney, and lung problems.

Tuberculosis can be prevented by few major factors like isolating the infected person, reduced transmission, and early treatment.
