Skin Slit Smear-AFB

For treatment purposes, the number of skin lesions and nerves affected divides leprosy patients into two groups: those with multibacillary (MB) leprosy and those with paucibacillary (PB) leprosy. 

A skin smear is a test in which a small cut is made in the skin, and a sample is taken. 

The sample is then stained to look for multibacillary (MB) leprosy, a bacillus resistant to acid. If there are no bacteria, paucibacillary leprosy can be found.
