Highlights from PDF
 A new polymorphism, A61894G, in VDR gene was associated to leprosy
 The transversion (G>A) conferred susceptibility for disease in PB group
 T61968C and A61894G polymorphisms interaction are crucial in M. leprae infection
 TCAA genotype and negative Mitsuda presented 28.33-fold chance to develop the leprosy
