All new female patients of leprosy attending the dermatology OPD of a rural medical college on North Bengal for 1 year were studied to elicit the clinico-epide miological pattern. Out of 650 new cases of leprosy, 207 were female, with a male to female ratio of about 2:1. The majority of them belonged to the age group of 31-40 years and most of them were from rural area. Tuberculoid type was the commonest Fifteen percent cases gave history of intra-familial contact and another 7% had extra-familial. Pregnancy had a deleterious effect on the course of leprosy.
