Mycobacterium leprae

Hello there, my name is M. leprae.
I'm also an 'acid fast' bacteria, carried on your breathe.
I like cool areas of your skin, eyes and nose.

I'm best known for giving people leprosy.
I cover your body in coloured patches and lumps.
I don't actually make your limbs fall off, I just kill the nerves in your skin.
You lose your limbs because you can't feel when you hurt them.

I have 2 types!
Healthy people only get a milder 'tuberculoid' kind of leprosy.
But if your immune sysyem is weak, you get my more severe 'lepromatous' kind.

Winai, not everybody that lives in venezuela is a fan of their president. Leave the man alone, he's doing it in an educational effort.

Great blog btw, i really enjoy it. How about a little Comamonas? C. testosteroni is out there in many sites saving the planet! Cheers!
