Abstract

Histoid leprosy is an uncommon variant of lepromatous leprosy. Its differential diagnoses include dermatofibroma, neurofibroma, molluscum contagiosum, xanthoma, keloids and can result in misdiagnosis in clinical practice. Herein, we report a female patient with histoid leprosy misdiagnosed as dermatofibroma, in order to illustrate the possibility of misdiagnosis, and give physicians an insight into histoid leprosy.

組織樣麻風是瘤型麻風的罕見變體。其鑑別診斷包括皮膚纖維瘤、神經纖維瘤、傳染性軟疣、黃瘤、瘢痕疙瘩等,故有可能在臨床治療中被誤診。本文中,我們報導了一名女性患者的組織樣麻風被誤診為皮膚纖維瘤,用來闡釋誤診的可能,並讓醫者深入了解組織樣麻風。
