Abstract

Summary

Results of a histopathological study of the tissues of a mouse experimentally infected with indicate that leprosy bacilli can cross the blood-brain barrier and multiply in the brain and that they gain access to ganglion cells by a haematogenous route. The findings are discussed with reference to lepromatous leprosy in man and the use of the thymectomised irradiated mouse as a model for the study of the disease.
