Cómo diagnosticar y tratar la lepra

ILEP, (2002)

Esta es la primera de la serie de Guías de Aprendizaje sobre la lepra publicadas por ILEP. Va dirigida a todo el personal sanitario que trata a personas afectadas de lepra, especialmente a los que reciben a los pacientes remitidos por primera vez por otros profesionales, como en un Centro de Salud Primario. Las personas de las que se sospecha que padecen lepra tienen que ser examinadas aquí detenidamente para que el diagnóstico pueda ser confirmado o rechazado. Por lo tanto, esta Guía ofrece información más detallada que la Guía para la Eliminación de la Lepra como Problema de Salud Pública de la OMS, que va dirigida principalmente al personal sanitario más periférico.
