RR Mittal, RL S Walia, SS Gill, R Mangla
November-December 1996, 62(6):351-353
Fifty cases of erythroderma were studied clinically and histopathologically. Clinically 11 were of eczemas, 12 of psoriasis, 14 were drug-induced, 11 of idiopathic group and 1 each of pemphigus foliaceus (PF) and cogenital bullous ichthyoslform erythroderma (CBIE). Histopathologically 10 cases of psoriasis, 1 of PFand 1 of CBIE showed specific histopathology and therefore clinical histopathological correlation was possible only in 12 (24%) cases. Exact differentiation in erythroderma due to eczemas, drugs or idiopathic was not possible histopathologically.

Comparative efficacy of topical anthralin and intralesional triamcinolone in the treatment of alopecia areata
SR Narahari
November-December 1996, 62(6):348-350
Efficacy of intralesional triamcinolone acetonide (10mg/ml) and topical anthralin 1.15% cream was compared in the treatment of alopecia areata. Study groups consisted of 37 patients for injection and 32 patients for cream. All of them belonged to Type I of Ikeda’s classification. The study showed that triamcinolone induces more adequate response in terms of regrowth of hairs than anthralin. However, the relapse rate was higher with triamcinolone. No difference was noted in terms of complete regrowth of hairs on the lesional skin and side effects of drugs.

Secondary cutaneous carcinomatosis
RK Kotokey
November-December 1996, 62(6):357-358
Secondary cutaneous carcinomatosis may be the primary menifestation of malignancies. Due to the help of modern investigative techniques primary malignant sites can be detected. But in many circumstances the primary site can not be detected in spite of available investigation. The cases presented here clearly show that the secondary cutaneous menifestation may be the first clue for detecting a hidden primary maligmancy.

In vitro drug sensitivity of trichophyton rubrum against griseofulvin, ketoconazole and fluconazole
S Tandon, SP Dewan, U Mohan, Amarjit Kaur, SK Malhotra, Pushpa Devi
November-December 1996, 62(6):345-347
The in vitro activity of griseofulvin, ketoconazole and fluconazole was investigated against 50 isolates of Trichophyton rubrum. Ketoconazole was more active, inhibiting all the 50 isolates at a concentration of 5 μgm/ml (MIC range 0.5-5 μgm/ml). Griseofulvin (MIC range 2.5-20 μgm/ml) required 20 μgm/ml of the drug for inhibition of all the isolates. Fluconazole was least active as it inhibited only 2 isolates at a concentration of 20 μgm/ml, which was the upper limit of the test system.
