FIG. 2. From: Two Patients Coinfected with Mycobacterium leprae and Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 and Na?ve for Antiretroviral Therapy Who Exhibited Type 1 Leprosy Reactions Mimicking the Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome .

(A) Histopathology of a biopsy from the lesion of patient 1, showing a small tuberculoid granuloma in the dermis, dissociated by edema, next to a hair follicle. The arrows delimitate an area with a small collection of epithelioid histiocytes that are surrounded by a mantle of lymphocytes. The lesion was stained with hematoxylin-eosin stain. Original magnification, ×200. (B) Histopathology of a biopsy from the lesion of patient 2, showing well-organized tuberculoid granulomas in the dermis. The arrows delimitate an area rich in epithelioid histiocytes, with numerous infiltrating lymphocytes at the periphery. The lesion was stained with hematoxylin-eosin stain. Original magnification, ×100.
