Leprosy is a chronic infectious disease with varied presentation. Hypopigmented or erythematous patches and plaques, skin-colored nodules, and diffuse cutaneous infiltration are the different types of cutaneous lesions seen among patients of leprosy. Verrucous lesions are an uncommon finding of the disease and may be misdiagnosed in the present times due to its rarity. We have herein described two such patients, one of whom had verrucous lesions as the only evident manifestation of leprosy, while the other developed verrucous plaque as the part of leprosy relapse.
