Thalidomide neuropathy

There has been no response to my comment posted on December 15, 2011. The authors have not carried out a nerve biopsy, thus failing to exclude thalidomide neuropathy in leprosy patients with neuropathic pain. Thalidomide must therefore be withdrawn and no longer used in the management of erythema nodosum leprosum. Alternative treatments are available to manage this complication
