A Comparative Study of Efficacy of Cetrizine Versus Astemizole in Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria
M Vijay, RC Rawal, FE Billimoria
July-August 1994, 60(4):203-205
Efficacy of Cetrizine and Astemizole was comapared in 50 cases of chronic Idiopathic urticaria. Patients were divided into 2 groups viz A and B. Before starting the therapy, routine investigations were carried out to rule out any septic focus. Prior to treatment, 1 week before all medications were withdrawn. Cetrizine and Astemizole, 10 mg each, were given as a single daily morning dose for 1 month and patients were followed up for 1 month.

A Clinical and Bacteriological Study of Pyodermas
Adarsh Chopra, Ramesh Puri, RR Mittal, Shash Kanta
July-August 1994, 60(4):200-202
Clinical and bacteriological study was carried out in 100 cases of Pyodermas to find out the causative organism and their antibiotic sensitivity patterns. Maximum cases were of impetigo (31%) followed by furunculosis (24%), folliculitis (22%), pyogenic intertrigo (6%), sycosis and carbuncle (6% each), ecthyma (2%) and cellulitis (1%). Majority of the cases belonged to age group of 0-10 years. A total of 99 isolates from 100 cases with pyodermic lesions were isolated. Single infecting organism was isolated from 85.85% and more than one type of organisms from 7.07% of cases. No organism was isolated from 9.09% of cases. Coagulase positive Staphylococcus (80.8%) was the predominant species isolated followed by Beta-haemolytic streptococcus (13.13%) and Esch. coli (3.03%). Staphylococcus aureus showed highest sensitivity to Gentamicin, Erythromycin and Cephalexin and high resistence to Tetracycline, Penicillin and Polymixin. Streptococcus Beta-haemolyticus was highly sensitive to Gentamicin, Cloxacillin and Tetracycline and less sensitive to Penicillin and Ampicillin. Most of the strains were found to be resistant to one or more antibiotics.

Growth Characters and Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Leprosy Derived Mycelial Organism
VN Bhatia, Gopi Thawani, RC Mondal, D Nath
July-August 1994, 60(4):193-196
Growth characters and anti-microbial susceptibility of 36 leprosy-derived mycelial isolates resembling Dermatophilus species have been studied. The organism gave actinomycetoid type of growth on CMY-PD agar. In liquid medium, with similar constituents, the growth consisted of turbidity in the medium with a sheath on the top and mucoid deposit at the bottom. All the 36 isolates tested were sensitive to Rifampicin and Oflaxicin. 12 isolates showed resistance to DDS.

Erythrocyte Glucose-6 Phosphate Dehydrogenase Enzyme in Lichen Planus
K Rajiv Gupta, Vijay Kumar, Sardari Lal, Ra Sharma
July-August 1994, 60(4):206-207
Erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6 PD) enzyme was studied in 30 patients of lichen planus diagnosed clinically and confirmed by histopathology. There was significant decrease in G-6 PD in patients in comparison with controls. Inspite of this it is very difficult to suggest any aetiological role of erythrocyte G-6 PD in causation of lichen planus.

A Clinico-epidemiological Study of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Bikaner
MCR Vyas, G Kalla, D Srivastava, AK Bhardwaj
July-August 1994, 60(4):197-199
Clinico-epidemiological features of 142 smear positive case of oriental sore detected out of 394 clinically diagnosed cases, in 1 year duratin, are described. A distinct endemic belt of high cases density was observed in the thickly populated area of old walled city of Bikaner in close proximity of terrains revines & having high dog population. The current epidemiologic status of the disease has been evaluated. 72.53% cases were form age group 5 to 29 years; 60.56% of the positive cases had lesion on exposed body parts; lesions were ulcerative in 59.15% of cases and 73.94% of cases had single lesion on body. The majority of cases (73.94%) had duration of lesions from 1 to 3 months. 68.31% cases belonged to low socio-economic group. Males were affected more than females.

Neutrophil Chemotaxis in Recurrent Pyoderma Patients by Skin Window Test
K SriVenkateswara, BSN Reddy, SK Amarnath, Sambasi
July-August 1994, 60(4):210-212
Pathogenesis of recurrent pyodermas is far from clear, but recent literature has stressed the importance of host defences especially the neutrophil function. Neutrophil chemotaxis was estimated in 32 patients of recurrent pyodermas and in equal number of controls by the skin window method of Rebuck and Crowley. No significant variation could be detected in the neutrophil chemotaxis among controls and patients (P>0.05%).

RR Mittal, SS Gill, R Dutt
July-August 1994, 60(4):223-224
One 32 years male had itchy, erythematous, tense bullae which were complicated by contact - irritant eczema due to indigenous medication. Later he developed secondary infection and maggot infestation. On tapering off steroids he developed fresh crops of haemorrhagic tense bullae. Clinical diagnosis of Brunsting Perry Cicatricial Pemphiogoid (BPCP) was confirmed by subepidermal bullae. Bullae were controlled with 150 mg dapsone daily.
