Were you looking for information about Leprosy? Lepresse is a common misspelling of leprosy.
Leprosy is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae, bacteria that affect the skin, nerves, and mucous membranes. The condition usually affects the skin and peripheral nerves, and may be transmitted through infected respiratory droplets. Although there is no cure for leprosy, with early diagnosis and treatment, many symptoms and complications can be minimized or avoided altogether. Treatment typically involves antibiotics and supportive care.
