A quantitative estimation of discharge of M. leprae in the milk of 39 leprosy female patients has been made. Twelve of the 39 patients (10 LL/BL and 1 each of T/BT and BB) showed bacilli in their milk. Only one of these patients was on treatment. AFB count in 10 ml of milk was found to range from 4.3 X 10(4) to 4.3 X 10(5). Significance of discharge of such a large number of bacilli in breast milk is discussed.
