Prevalence of dermatoses in the neonates in Pondichery
CM Baruah, V Bhat, Rohit Bhargava, RB Garg, Ku
January-February 1991, 57(1):25-28
This study records the preliminary observation on neonatal dermatoses in relation to sex, birth weight and gestational age in 500 newborns delivered between August 1986 and September 1987 at JIPMER Hospital, Pondichery, Physiological dermatoses seen in 100% of the newborns, in the order of frequency were : linea nigra, Epstein's pearls, physiological scaling, milia and erythema toxicum. Salmon patches were the commonest vascular birthmarks (34.6%) Twenty-three per cent had transient neonatal angioma, an entity not described earlier. Infectious dermatoses observed were pyoderma (3%), staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, congenital syphilis, congenital candidiasis and a case of tinea corporis, probably the youngest described in literature. The commonest congenital malformation of the skin was absence of the outer fold of the helix (3.5%). An unusual case of aplasia cutis involving the scalp and both flanks associated with bilateral corneal opacities was observed.

Exposure time to sunlight for ultra violet light therapy
CR Srinivas, Rama Devadiga, TR Parashar, Chandras
January-February 1991, 57(1):17-18
Exposure time to sunlight for photo or photochemotherapy is arbitrarily determined. This could lead to inadequate or over exposure. As a sequence to our initial pilot study on exposure time for PUVASOL, we have now developed a bar chart which could be used as a guide to achieve a more logical and uniform exposure time during different months. We plan to extend the study to different zones in India.

Use of modified Ridley's bacteriological scale for assessment of multibacillary leprosy cases under multidrug therapy
SS Naik, R Ganapati
January-February 1991, 57(1):22-24
In order to obtain proper judgement of bacterial quantum in human source (leprosy cases) a modification to Ridley's Bacteriological Index is suggested by applying formula as follows : Average Bacteriological Index of the group of patients X No. of patients in group X "scoring point" based on Ridley`s logarithmic Bacteriological Index scale.This new system based on arithmetic scale has been applied to multibacillary leprosy cases under multidrug therapy in leprosy colonies and leprosy control unit in an urban area. This comparison revealed that the introduction of multidrug therapy initiated a reduction in total bacteriological quantum very fast (i.e.) 100% to 5% at 12 months, 2.5% at 24 months in leprosy colonies where there was no entry of multibacillary case. However, in the urban slum there is an influx of new multibacillary cases every year, though bacterial quantum reduced as compared to initial status, it has remained static even at 60th month. The application of modified Ridley's Bacteriological scale to judge "total bacterial quantum : in any given control area gives a more realistic indication of the progress of MDT programme.
