SUMMARY Leprosy is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae, which affects mainly the skin and peripherical nerves. Brasil has not yet achieved its goal of elimination of the number of cases of this disease, ranking second in terms of absolute numbers worldwide, with India occupying the first position. Primary Neural Leprosy is considered to be a challenge in diagnosis, since it affects the peripherical nerve system with the absence of skin lesions, thus mimicking rheumatological disorders, like in the case presented. A male, 31, with no previous comorbidities, five years ago, started feeling severe pain...
