Abstract

Mycobacterium ulcerans infection is responsible for severe skin lesions in sub-Saharan Africa. We enrolled 30 Beninese patients with Buruli ulcers in a pilot study to evaluate efficacy of an oral chemotherapy using rifampicin plus clarithromycin during an 8-week period. The treatment was well tolerated, and all patients were healed by 12 months after initiation of therapy without relapse
