Gurinderjit Singh
January-February 1998, 64(1):23-24
Forty patients suffering from androgenetic alopecia were given 3 to 4 sittings of hair transplantation at an interval of 4 to 6 weeks each. Only patients of type III. type III(vertex) and type IV baldness were operated. Twenty patients, six of type III. six of type III(vertex) and eight of type IV baldness were advised to use minoxidil 2% locally at the recipient area in the dose of 1 ml applied twice daily. Twenty patients of similar types of baldness were advised to justshampoo their hair daily without using topical minoxidil. Percentage of response was compared between the two groups. Minoxidil did not play any role in the percentage of hair survival before and after transplantation in androgenetic alopecia.However in 6Opercent grafts of patients who had used topical minoxidil, there was no initial postoperative hair shedding.

VK Somani, V Sucharita, VK Sharma, VN V L Sita, Fatima Razvi, Ramesh Bang
January-February 1998, 64(1):17-22
The efficacy of flutamide, an antiandrogen in idiopathic hirsutism was studied. The long term effects of treatment with low doses of flutamide on clinical and hormonal parameters were investigated. Nine patients with idiopathic hirsutism were studied basally and during treatment with 125mg flutamide thrice daily for a period of 9 months. Safety parameters were assessed throughout the study. Hirsutism was graded by Femiman and Gallwey score and hormones were evaluated basally and later quarterly. After three months of therapy, flutamide had caused a significant alleviation of hirsutism and this continued during the subsequent months. No clinical significant side effects were observed during the period of the study. Biochemical and hormonal parameters remained unchanged after 9 months of flutamide.

Vijay Gandhi, Paschal D’ Souza, Sumeet Gujral, M Ramam
January-February 1998, 64(1):34-36
Lichen nitidus occurs uncommonly on the palms and soles and has an unusual morphology at these sites. Two patients who presented with lesions on the palms and soles are reported. The first patient had rough papules with prominent keratotic plugs. In the second patient, the lesion was an irregular plaque with peripheral papules showing keratotic plugs. Both patients had typical lesions elsewhere on the body. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis. Awareness of this variant willhelp in prompt recognition of the condition.
