One hundred and twenty Brazilian patients with several forms of hanseniasis were tested with DNCB. The results were the following: 1) the sensitization of patients with hanseniasis to DNCB was lower than that seen in the general population; 2) the sensitization of the borderline and virchowian forms of hanseniasis were lower than that seen in the indeterminate and tuberculoid forms.
