This paper deals with the mathematical modeling of leprosy, an infectious and
contagious disease considered neglected. A compartmental model is analyzed in the
investigation of the dispersion of leprosy in a population in order to predict the
transmission of new patients and allowing different groups of individuals to be
analyzed in the face of exposure and infection, seeking the impact on the
understanding of transmission and planning of disease control strategies.
