In the lepromatous pole, sensory loss has a 'glove and stocking' pattern and not much literature is available on the pattern of anhidrosis. Our case here shows a similar pattern of loss of sensation and sweating in the lepromatous pole which has been pictographically documented by the use of a starch-iodine test.
