Ref.: (LML) Median nerve damage in leprosy
From: Arry Pongtiku, Papua, Indonesia
The photo from Dr Noto and discussion, I would also say atrophy of the palm muscles, scars from burns of the skin of the fingers, contracture of fingers means it is late and nerve damaged already and usually poor prognosis. Self Care and prednisolone treatment may work effectively to survive the nerves before 6 months or during leprosy reaction. Filling POD (Prevention of Disability) form is important for leprosy health workers to detect the weakness and deformity of nerves.
I would add some photos about weak fingers, hand and self care exercise.
Thank you very much,
