Histoid leprosy is a rare and uncommon variant of lepromatous leprosy which generally occurs following
resistance to dapsone therapy or relapse after dapsonemonotherapy or multidrug therapy. Rarely, it can
occur de novo without any history of treatment. We present one such rare case of de-novohistoid leprosy
mimicking neurofibromatosis presented in a 43 year old male.
