Turn-over of Stratijm Corneum in Leprosy
RP Okhandiar, Ela Sinha, AD Mishra, RK Sinha
Stratum corneum showed increased proliferative activity on the patches of leprosy as evidenced by a significantly fast stratum corneum turnover time (p 0.001) measured by fluorescent staining technic with dansyl chloride. These findings suggest imperfect keratinization on the patches of leprosy leading to formation of structurally weak stratum corneum.
