It is a disease that causes colored patches on the skin. It can harm the eyes, limbs, and nerves. In the 1980s, there were millions of known cases in the world. Although the number of people who contract the disease has dropped to around 200,000 since then.

Around 200 cases usually appear in the U.S per year. Most infected people are in only 16 countries. In particular, Florida has seen a rapid increase since 2017. Florida normally sees an average of 10 new cases per year, but since the beginning of 2017 there are already 9 new cases registered.
