Figure 5: (a-d) Patients with leprosy showing an abnormal echopattern of the peripheral nerves (a, b) and vascularity. (a): Median nerve in the carpal tunnel showing thickened fascicles; (b): Ulnar nerve in the lower arm showing a hypoechoic echopattern with loss of normal honeycomb appearance or a fascicular pattern. On color Doppler, there is intraneural vascularity in the median nerve in the carpal tunnel (c) and in the ulnar nerve in the lower arm (d) in patients with leprosy
