Leprosy is a slowly progressive mutilating and stigmatizing disease. As the spectrum of disease is varied, various dermatological conditions may lead to diagnostic dilemma. Early diagnosis will help in the initiation of its treatment to avoid complications and morbidity due to the disease.

Here, we report a case of leprosy that was mimicking psoriasis – a papulosqaumous disease clinically.
