Figure 2: Hematoxylin and eosin staining shows focal thinning of the lining stratified squamous epithelium with the underlying dermis showing splaying of the collagen and replacement by sheets of foamy histiocytes (×40) (a), with some of these histiocytes showing spindly appearance (×40). (b) Modified Ziehl–Neelsen staining showed numerous lepra bacilli present singly and in clumps (c)
