Abstract

Thalidomide has a growing role in the treatment of leprosy, and might be used in the future for other conditions of immunological interest. The dramatic history of this drug should not prevent its use as far as fertile women are not treated, or are offered adequate contraception. On the other hand, there is reason to worry for the fact that thalidomide will be used mostly in less developed countries, where contraception is far from an established practice, and pharmacovigilance is almost non existent.
