The anxious face of the Buruli Ulcer index patient after his wound was dressed. He is a 42 year old farmer from a rural community who journeys

several kilometers a day, crossing streams on his way to his farms. The patient sought treatment for the ulcer from traditional healers for several years before coming to the clinic for treatment. This first line therapy contributed greatly to delayed treatment and delayed healing of the wound. Ghana, 2011.
