Hansen's disease, also known as leprosy, arises when bacteria infect the Schwann cells that wrap around axons of peripheral nerves to form a myelin .shealth. Attacks by the immune system on the bacteria-infected glial cells causes a loss of myelin in peripheral nerves. How is Hansen's disease similar to multiple sclerosis? Why do the symptoms differ? Why are people with Hansen's disease unusually prone to injuring themselves?
