Side Lab Diagnosis of Chromoblastomycosis
Vinod K Sharma, Bhushan Kumar, Inderjit Kaur, Surrinder Kaur
May-June 1985, 51(3):157-159
A 35 year old male having erythematous and verrucous plaques and scars on his right lower limb, diagnosed as a case of chromoblastomycosis is described. The importance of close scrutiny of lesions for brownish- black dots and their direct microscopic exarmination in 10% KOH for the causative fungus is highlighted. The causative fungus was identified as Cladosporium carrionni.

Histopathlogic Spectrum of Lichen Striatus
EM Abdul Razack
May-June 1985, 51(3):134-138
Out of 67 patients with classical lichen striatus, consisting of discrete linchenoid paules or plaques in a linear fashion, occurring mostly on the extremities and followed up for over 3,1/2 years, the. skin lesions on 49 subjects were biopsied and studied. The different histopathologic changes could be classified into 3 groups. Perivascular dermatitis (51%) was the commonest pattern, followed by perivascular and periappendageal dermatitis (26.5%) and lichenoid dermatitis (22.5%). Three specimens showed m addition, islands of epithelioids cells.

Cicatrising Alopecias
Salil K Pauja, AK Jaiswal
May-June 1985, 51(3):139-143
An attempt was made to study the distinguishing clinical features, histopathological findings especially the elastic tissue stain and examination of the plucked hairs in 30 cases of cicatrical alopecia. Clinically, pseudopelade had irregular areas of atrophy with tufts of normal hairs arising from the bald scarred areas. Folliculitis decalvans had a history or presence of inflammatory papules and pustules with atrophy extending to the temporal areas. DLE showed features of cutaneous DLE at least in some places. A smooth, slightly violaceous atrophic patch with spinous lesions in other areas suggested lichen planopilaris. Morphoea presented with a sclerosed plaque which was linear in some cases. Most of the plucked hairs in cicatrising alopecias showed anagen hairs which were easily plucked, in contrast to the telogen hairs of alopecia areata. Histopathologically accumulation of elastic fibres around the vertical fibrous column and loss of elastic tissue in the papillary dermis were diaagnostic of pseudopelade. In folliculitis decalvans, fibrosis was irregular with many dilated blood vessels even in the late state of the disease. Appearances suggestive of solar elastosis were characteristic of advanced lesions of DLE. Irregular atrophy with scanty fragmented elastic fibres were found in the scarring stage of lichen planopilaris. Morphoea showed thickened and closely packed collagen bundles and fragmented elastic fibres. On the basis of its characteristic clinical and histopathological features, not found even in the late stages of other scarring alopecias, it is suggested that pseudopelade is an autonomous disease.

Renal Involvement in Leprosy
NK Chopra, RS Pande
May-June 1985, 51(3):144-147
Renal involvement in 20 lepromatous leprosy (LL) and 5 non- lepromatous patients was assessed by (a) biochemical analysis of blood and urine, (b) renal functional tests, and (c) histopathological examination of renal biopsies. Ten age-matched healthy normals formed the control group. LL patients had a varying degree of renal involvement as indicated by the presence of pus cells, granular, hyaline and red cell casts, reversal of albumin/globulin ratio and lowered creatinine clearance rates. Renal biopsies showed significant histopathological lesions in 50% of lepromatous as compared to 20% of the non-lepromatous patients. The pathological changes were predominantly of chronic glomerulonephritis followed by chronic pyelonephritis and interstitial nephritis. Surprisingly none of the patients studied showed granulomas, acid-fast bacilli or amyloid in the kidney.

NL Sharma, RC Sharma
May-June 1985, 51(3):148-150
Metal dermatitis accounted for 13% of the total contact dermatitis cases and about 0.17% of the total outpatient attendance. Nickel was the commonest sensitizer (34.90%). Cobalt, copper, aluminum and iron sensitivity was seen in 13.6%, 6.8%, 2.3% and 4.5% cases respectively. There was a complete absence of chromate sensitivity.

A Double Blind Comparative Evaluation of Ointment and Cream Bases Containing Corticosteroids
PK Singh, Gurmohan Singh
May-June 1985, 51(3):143-145
Efficacy of two corticosteroid Preparations (Halcinonide (0.1%) and fluocinglone acetonide (0.0125%) in two different bases (ointment and creams) was evaluated on ten healthy volunteers using the wheal suppression technique in a double blind manner. The ointment preparations were more potent than the cream preparations of the same corticosteroid, in the same concentration These differences were highly significant.
