100 new cases of Hansen's disease discovered during 7 years of dermatologic practice in French Guyana

, : 100 new cases of Hansen's disease discovered during 7 years of dermatologic practice in French Guyana. Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique et de Ses Filiales 68(4): 344-352

From the dermatologic viewpoint Hansen disease represents a significant affection, and our participation for a quarter of the demonstration, although our activity is limited to Cayenne, seems to be particularly necessary. We do not wish to be alone in our interest in this problem, and we sincerely think that in French Guyana any physician should be "Leprolog". The severity of the lepromatous forms and their distribution into any age and place, suggest that it should be considered as a promising disease.
