Determining the occurrence of leprosy amongst couples and establishing the type of leprosy in index and secondary cases. Clinical histories of patients registered in the Leprosy Control Programme were reviewed. Clinical exams were performed and personal interviews carried out with couples suffering from leprosy.

They were aged from 20 to No paucibacillary cases were associated with multibacillary leprosy tuberculoode the couples. Only two couples had consanguinity. None of the couples had had leprosy at the time of being married. The time between leprosy being detected in index cases and the disease being detected in secondary patients varied from 5 to 40 years. Disabilities were more common in the feet and to a higher degree in lepromatous index cases who had had the disease for a longer time than the secondary cases because these were more frequently paucibacillary patients who had a disease having shorter evolution.


In spite of ongoing, prolonged contact, conjugal leprosy is not frequent and requires several years to develop in the second person.

Lepromatous leprosy in index cases was more frequently associated with leprosy in the couple. When the primary case was paucibacillary, no multibacillary leprosy occurred in the secondary case.
