Occupational Dermatoses Among the Cashew Nut Workers in Karnataka
JS Pasricha, CR Srinivas, DS Krupashanker, Kalpana Shenoy, PV Subba Rao, KK Singh
January-February 1988, 54(1):15-20
PMID:28134170
Seventy five female workers employed in the cashew nut industry in Karnataka to slice off the outer hard shells from the nuts and thus exposed to the chashew nut shell oil had a characteristic cauterization type of reaction manifesting as brownish-black, thickened sheets of dead skin covering the dorsal as well as the palmar aspects of hands including the fingers and feet. Smaller but similer lesions were also seen on these parts of the forearms, abdomen, neck and face which were not covered with clothes. The fingers were thinned and tapering and several nails of the hands and feet were thickened, discolored and eaten away. The other changes included loss of the dermatoglyphic patterns, maceration of the hands, small pits on the finger tips and pitted keratolysis seen in some cases only. Similar changes were also seen on the feet of both the male workers exposed to the same oil, in the section which extracts the oil from the sliced shells. In contrast 29, feamle wokers engaged to peel off the thin reddish covering on the cashew nut had normal hands and feet, except for the two callosities on the flexural aspect of the proximal phalanx of the right middle finger and proximal interphalangeal joint of the right index finger respectively, caused by the friction of the peeling knife. An open patch test with the cashew nut shell oil used as such in 17 workers produced a cauterization type of reaction in 32 workers irrespective of the nature of their duties, while the standard occluded patch test with 10% cashew nut shell oil in polyethylene glycol showed a mild cauterization type of reaction in only 6 workers. Patch tests with 1% and 0.1% concentrations of the shell oil were negative in all the workers. Two barrier creams tested to protect the workers from the cashew nut shell oil produced reasonably effective results within a week.

Comparative Study of Leprom114 Reaction in Indeterminate Leprosy and Controls
O Ravindranathan, PA Sarojini
January-February 1988, 54(1):24-26
PMID:28134172
Lepromin test (LT) was done on 100 cases of indeterminate leprosy (IL) and in 100, age and sex matched controls. LT was negative in 98% of IL, but positive in 80% of the controls. Lepromin positive cases showed a tuberculoid picture histopathologically, though the clinical picture was that of IL. There was no co-relation between Fernandez reaction and Mitsuda reaction.

Histochemical Profile of Vitiligo
RV Koranne, KG Sachdeva, PC Beohar
January-February 1988, 54(1):21-23
PMID:28134171
Fifty untreated vitiligo patients were subjected to histo-chemical examination using dopa reaction technique. Dopa positive melanocytes were absent in a large majority (82%) of cases. Increase in the number of supra-basal clear cells was observed in 70 percent. Presence of inflammatory infiltrate at dermo- epidermal junction along with basal cell layer-dissolution was seen in 7 cases. Grayish-black, void cells considered to be inactive melanocytes, were seen in the basal layer.
