Multidrug therapy and eye disease in leprosy : a cross-sectional study in the People's Republic of China.
Factors associated with leprosy-related eye disease in a multidrug therapy (MDT) treated population in China were assessed to determine if status prior to inclusion in the MDT programme (newly diagnosed leprosy patient or leprosy patient on prior dapsone monotherapy) contributed to the prevalence of ocular pathology.
Trained leprosy paramedical workers in Sichuan Province examined 974 leprosy patients in a standardized fashion.
Univariate analyses and multiple logistic regression were used to assess the contribution of demographic and clinical parameters to leprosy-related eye disease.
