ABSTRACT: Lepromin reaction in (65) apparently healthy children (age between 5 and 10 years) of parents with leprosy were studied. 30 children born of parents living in same village with no clinical leprosy were included in the study as controls. The mean diameter of lepromin reaction in children of parents with lepromatous leprosy is significantly reduced when compared to children of parents with tuberculoid leprosy, and those with no clinical leprosy.
