Leprosy (also known as Hansen’s disease) is a chronic infection spread from person to person causing damage to the skin and peripheral nerves in those infected. This damage leads commonly to deformities caused by injuries from people losing feeling in parts of their body, such as their feet and hands. Common deformities include dragged feet, claw hands and blindness through limp eyelids.
