Leprosy is a chronic infection principally affecting the skin and peripheral nerves caused by the obligate intracellular organism Mycobacterium leprae. Complications secondary to the neuropathy can result in deformity and disability. The plantar ulcer is the commonest complication in leprosy. And the plantar pressure is important factors developing plantar ulcer. So the author is studied about the possible predicting factor of the plantar ulcer in patients with leprosy.
Subjects included 100 leprosy patients, divided two groups according to the recent plantar ulcer history. The author analyzed the relations between that significant factors and various factors (PGL-I titer, sensory level).
The correlations between the PGL-I antibody titer(Spearman's rho=0.215, p=0.048) and PGL-I antibody group(Spearman's rho=0.215, p=0.045) and the recent plantar ulcer history were found.
The author ascertained that the PGL-I antibody titer and PGL-I antibody group PGL-I antibody titer would be the possible tool for predicting the plantar ulcer of the Hansen disease program.

Key words : leprosy, plantar ulcer, PGL-I antibody titer
