A total of 884 registered cases from the city of Yangon were retrospectively analysed. The defaulter proportion among cases registered for treatment at the Thaketa Health Centre was 34.16%. It was established that patient sex and occupation are not a factor in defaulting. Paucibacillary cases and cases with no disability are more likely to default.
