Cutaneous anaesthesia in necrobiosis lipoidica.

Abstract

Cutaneous sensation in plaques of necrobiosis lipoidica was assessed in five non-diabetic and seven diabetic patients. Eleven of the twelve showed partial or complete anaesthesia of the affected skin. These findings are important in the differential diagnosis of tuberculoid leprosy. Further studies of nerve function in cutaneous granulomas need to be carried out.
