A 23-year old male presented with multiple, asymptomatic, raised lesions of 4 months' duration. The lesions were well demarcated. Dome-shaped papules and nodules were seen on normal looking skin; some were shiny, pearly white and umbilicated. Bilateral greater auricular, ulnar, radial cutaneous and lateral popliteal nerves were thickened. Slit skin smear from an umbilicated nodule had a BI of 6+. Biopsy showed features of lepromatous leprosy.
