Leprosy is a chronic inflammatory disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis. Histoid leprosy, a rare clinicopathological form of leprosy, poses a diagnostic challenge to even astute clinicians. We report the case that occurred de novo in an elderly who presented with small to large lesions all over the body. A fresh focus on histoid leprosy is the primary objective of this article, especially in the context of the postglobal leprosy elimination era.
