Trauma associated with break in continuity of skin results in inocalation of M. leprae at the site of injury with resultant development of inoculation leprosy. The present report records a case of inoculation leprosy after ear-piercing in a 45 year old female with positive smears and borderline lepromatous histopathology, due most probably to systematic steroids.
