이재연 강남포스트 학생기자 | 승인 2022.09.25 21:04

Buruli ulcer is a skin condition that often affects people's arms and legs. It also goes by the name Mycobacterium ulcer.
It is an infection brought on by bacteria. It makes skin sores decay, which can harm muscles and bones and lead to the amputation of some body parts.

Usually, Buruli ulcers happen in Africa or the South Pacific. In the early stages of the infection, antibiotics can be used to treat it. However, if it is discovered too late, the infection may spread to the bone and endanger life. Every year, the disease is discovered in more than 1,500 to 2,000 persons, and 95% of the patients are Africans who are underprivileged and cannot receive early treatment. As things deteriorate, other pharmaceutical firms and governments are at a loss about how to handle Buruli ulcers.

Atopic treatment expert Hwang Hyo-Jung (Unhwa Clinic), a volunteer member of the Good News Medical Service Society, visited Cote d'Ivoire where he learned about the severity of "Buruli ulcer" and came up with a cure. "I hope that Africans suffering from Buruli ulcers would restore their health and live proudly as members of society," director Hwang Hyo-judge said.
