Leprosy is a contagious disease that is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae. Researchers still do not completely understand how the disease is spread, although some believe it is transmitted through infected respiratory droplets. Leprosy usually affects the skin and peripheral nerves; once a person starts experiencing symptoms, they can range in type and severity. Treatment, which typically involves antibiotics and supportive care, will generally continue for one to two years, depending on the form of disease.
