Clinical and epidemiological data on 782 patients of psoriasis collected from a clinic in north India is presented. Psoriatics accounted for 1.4% of the total dermatology out-patients. There was a male preponderance. Three fourths of the patients had over 50% involvement of the skin surface. Severity of the disease was same in both sexes. Plaque type disease was commonest in over 90%. Family history of psoriasis was present in 7.40/o-, the age of onset was significantly lower in them as compared to the patients without family history. More than half of the' patients did not experience any seasonal variation. Scalp was the first site of involvement followed by legs and arms.

CASE REPORTS
Segmental Neurofibromatosis with Angiolipomas
Kamlender Singh, M Ramam
July-August 1986, 52(4):226-229
PMID:28150649
A 28 year old male had right axillary freckling, a few cafe-aulait macules and numerous freckles over the right upper half of his body involving the -scapular region, shoulder, chest wall, upper arm and proximal half of the forearm Numerous, bilateral subcutaneous nodules which could possibly be dismissed clinically as subcutaneous nodules of neurofibromatosis, proved to be angiolipomas histopathologically. It is suggested that in the cal molluscum fibrosum, histopathology of subcutaneous nodules should always be resorted to in suspected cases of Neurofibromatosis even when there are suggestive pigmentary changes.

C Mahalingam
July-August 1986, 52(4):213-215
PMID:28150643
A sample survey was conducted to find out the prevalence of dermatoses among the tribal population of Kalrayan hill in South Arcot district who were recently found out .from the hidden spots of the hill. The prevalence of dermatoses was 40% among the 242 screened. Scabies had a prevalence of 22.7% and was more among the tribal s chool children put in huts, emphasizing the need for adequate shelter and health education. The low frequency of nutritional dermatoses 3.7% is attributed to the implementation of the noon-meal scheme. Surprising low prevalence rate for leprosy (1.7%) in this highly endemic district of South Arcot needs further probing to find out some clues for protection from leprosy.
