Childhood Leprosy - a Clinicoepidemiological Study From Pondicherry
Vijay Kumar, MC Baruah, BR Garg
September-October 1989, 55(5):301-304
Children numbering 9795 were examined. Theprevalence of leprosy among children was 7.2 per thousand. The youngest patient was 2- years-old. The ratio between boys and girls was 1.3: 1. History of contact was present in 23.9% cases. The lowest age at onset recorded was one year and eight months. The commonest type of leprosy found in this study was BT. Singl-, patch was seen in 57.7% cases. In 65.9% a single patch was present on the exposed parts. Leprosy disabillty rate was 8.5%.

MPS Sawhney, RS Shakatwat, BM Roy, A Khetarpal, SK Verma
September-October 1989, 55(5):329-330
A 47 year old female developed multifocal Langerhans cell granulomatosis (Hand-Schuller-Christian disease) manifesting as papulo-pustular, nodular, crusted and scaly lesions, xanthelasma, ulceration of gingival mucosa with loss of teeth, vaginal granulomatosis, diabetes insipidus, multiple osteolytic bone lesions and honeycombing of the lungs. Skin biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. Treatment with prednisolone 45 mg methotrexate 2.5 mg daily, led to regression of lesions, reduction of bone of partial clearance of lung lesions and osteolytic bone lesions. However, the patient died due to widespread nature of the disease.

SD Chaudhary, S Gupta, KK Bhatia, VK Jain
September-October 1989, 55(5):310-313
One hundred children were patch tested with 5% nickel sulphate, 0.5% potassium dichromate, 5% cobalt chloride and pure petrolatum. Seventeen children (11 having eczematous and 6 having non-eczematous dermatoses) showed positive patch test reactions to one or more metals, chromium (13%), nickel (8%) and cobalt (1%). The incidence of metal sensitivity was highger (32.5%) in the older children (8-14 years) as compared to the younger children 7 years of age (2.66%). The female children had a higher incidence of sensitivity as compared to the male children.

Histopathological Patrern of Early Syphilis
RV Koranne, PJ Raju, PC Beohar
September-October 1989, 55(5):305-307
Thirty six untreated cases of early syphilis comprising 10 primary and 26 secondary syphilis were included in the study. Primary syphilis depicted classical istopathological features of ulceration, exocytosis, perivascular infiltrate of lympocytes and plasma cells along with endothelial cell proliferation. Secondary syphilis, however, depicted intriguing features. Lichenoid infiltrate along with basal layer dissolution was seen in 3 and psoriasiform appearance in 1 cases. Three cases showed granulomatous reaction. One case manifesting as pruritic follicular rash had classical features on histopathology. Vascular changes were absent or inconspicuous in as many as 22.2% and 8.3% respectively.

Pachyonychia congenital is an infrequent genodermatosis, characterized by nail dystrophy, hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles, follicular keratosis and leukoplakia. It was seen in two male patients aged 12 and 35 years respectively. The younger patient had nail changes, palmo-planter keratoderma, eye changes, hypotrichosis and mental retardation, while the elder one had minimal nail changes, keratoderma and leukoplakia.

PK Kar, PK Jha, PS Snehi, AS Sohi
September-October 1989, 55(5):308-309
Efficacy of multidrug therapy (MDT) for paucibacillary leprosy for 12 months was evaluated in 91 fresh cases, which included indeterminate (28 cases), tuberculoid (22) and borderline tuberculoid leprosy (41 cases). All were males and were hospitawd. The MDT consisted of rifampicin 600 mg once a month and dapsone 100 mg daily. Both drugs were given concomitantly for 12 months. At the end of 6 months, 37.2% cases remained clinically active. At the end of once year, 91.2% cases receiving MDT became inactive.

Clavulanic Acid and Amoxycillin in Uncomplicated Gonorrhoea
Bhushan Kumar, K Vinod Sharma, Meera Sharma
September-October 1989, 55(5):294-296
Augmentin (Amoxycillin 3 . gm combined with 250 mg clavulanic acid) and ampicillin 3.5 gin and I gm probenecid orally were evaluated in 50 patients for treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhoea. Success rates of 80% and 100% were obtained with augmentin and ampicillin with probenecid respectively in non-PPNG strains. None of 4 PPNG strains responded to ampicillin-probnecid. Augmentin in single oral dose cannot be recommended for the treatment of non-PPNG strains in India.

Age-related Changes in Thermal Sensory Thresholds of Skin
AB Gupta, S Mukherjee, B Haldar
September-October 1989, 55(5):290-293
Thermal sensory thresholds of 85 healthy subjects with aormal height to weight range, and classified into five age groups between 10 to 60 years were measured and analysed statistically. Measurements were carried out with an electronic device at two 'different sites; forehead (FH) and finger-tip (Fr), almost at constant (28-32C) ambient temperature and rel.,i(ive humidity (00- 65%). Since no significant sex difference was observed in any.,igc group at either.,,iie, data for both sexes %k,cre pooled to comliute the groupmeans.Thc agegroul)sshowed different mean thermal sensory threshold levels which progressively increased with age at both the sites. The analysis of variance among the groups was found to be significant at 1% for both FH and FT. While the data in groups 1 to 3 were relatively homogenous, greater variability was found in groups 4 and 5. The threshold level, y, and the age group mean, x, could be related by an empirical equation y = A + B in x, where A = 30.85 for FH and 27.82 for Fr and B = 1.37 for FH and 3.39 for FT.
