[Ocular lesions in leprosy (author's transl)].

Abstract

Modern authors estimate from 47 p. 100 to 78 p. 100 the frequency of ocular lesions in leprosy. This frequency varies according to the duration and type of the disease. These lesions may result from a paralysis of the V or VII cranial nerves, or from a bacteremia, but, more probably, from a spreading of the bacilli from the nasal cavity through the lacrymal ducts. The various lesions of each ocular structure are described with reference to the T. or L. type of leprosy.
