Caption: Tuberculoid leprosy discolouration on a man's chin. This chronic skin disease is caused by an infection of the Mycobacterium leprae bacterium. The tuberculoid form is benign and self-limiting, resulting in patches of skin discolouration and localized numbness due to nerve damage. Leprosy is treated with a combination of antibacterial drugs, to avoid drug-resistant strains developing.
