Osteoporosis has become a rapidly social burden for public health in South Korea, but the lack of study on osteoporosis of persons affected Hansen’s disease. For the evaluation of the prevalence of osteoporosis of persons-affected Hansen’s disease, we investigated a bone mineral density (BMD) of persons affected Hansen’s disease who live in the settlement villages. 1,125 subjects(male: 462, female: 663 & MB: 739, PB: 382)) were included, and the mean age was 72.2 ± 8.3 years. The prevalence of osteoporosis was 67.8% and that of osteopenia was 26.7%. The T-score and Z-score of MB type patients showed a significantly lower compared with that of PB type patients(T-sore: p=0.014, Z-score: p=0.018).
