  • Dapsone can be used during breastfeeding; however, hemolytic anemia might occur, especially in newborn infants and in those with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. The time of greatest risk for hemolysis in fullterm newborns without G6PD deficiency might be as short as 8 days after birth.[1] One source states that use of dapsone in the treatment of leprosy is advantageous becaus…

For older les…

  • A case of selective peripheral motor polyneuropathy caused by excessive intake of dapsone is described.

Neurophysiologically, low amplitude muscle responses, prolonged distal latencies and reduced motor conduction velocities were found together with electro…
