May-June 2001, 67(3):124-125
PMID:28615563
Oral vitamin D3 analogues 1 alpha hydroxy cholecalciferol and 1,25 dihydroxy cholecalciferol were compared with placebo in the treatment of psoriasis. Three groups of 15 patients each were given 1 α hydroxy cholecalciferol at 1 ug/ day 1,25 dihydroxy cholecalciferol at 0.5 ug/d and multi vitamins other than Vit A and Vit D, respectively. Patients were followed up for 3-6 months. Assessment of severity and response was done by Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI). Both Vit D, analogues 1 α hydroxy vitamins D3 and 1,25 (OH)2 D3 were found to be effective. Serum and urinary calcium remained within normal limits.

The aim of this study was to compre the efficacy and safety of topical clobetasol propionate and clobetasol propionate with zinc sulphate cream preparation. Steroid responsive dermatoses were primarily considered in both the treatment groups. From thc analysis of 291 patients, from five different centres, it wasnoted that though the out come was Positive in both the trial groups significant differences existed in the treatment group which received clobetasol propionate with zinc sulphate preparation. During evaluation the outcome was even between both treatment groups on the day 7. However towards the end of the study significant differences existed.

PMID:28615567
A study to compare the efficacy of topical 2% mupirocin ointment and 2% topical sodium fusidate ointment in the treatment of primary pyodermas was done. Out of one hundred cases of primary pyodermas, fifty were randomly treated with 2% topical mupirocin ointment and fifty were given 2% topical sodium fusidate ointment. Patients were evaluated after four days and seven days of treatment.

Kaushal K Verma, EM Ovung
May-June 2001, 67(3):126-127
PMID:28615564
Fifteen patients, 10 males and 5 females, between 10-27 years age with different benign vascular skin lesions i.e.haemangioma (3) and lymphangioma circumscriptum (2) were taken up for this study. The lesions in all the patients were vaporized/excised with the indigeneously developed carbon dioxide laser. The patients were evaluated at 1,2,4,8 and 12 weekly visits to assess the overall response to the treatment and the side effects. All the patients responded to the treatment. The patients with granuloma pyogenicum showed excellent response with complete disappearance of the lesions while the patients with haemangiomas, lymphangio-haemangiomas and lymphangioma circumscriptum improved by 70-90%. Transient hypopigmentation and mild scarring were seen in all the patients except in patienls with granuloma pyogenieum. There were no other significant side effects in any of the patients.

G Kalla, RK Kothiwala, MK Singhi, D Kachhawa
May-June 2001, 67(3):129-131
PMID:28615566
Almost all women have to handle vegetables and fruits, so vegetable and fruit contact dermatitis in females has surfaced as a dermatological problem. This study was therefore undertaken to evaluate the contact sensitization pattern of various vegetables and fruits in housewives in north-west Rajasthan. Thirty-eight commonly used vegetables and fruits extracted/crushed allergen's patch tests were applied as such over back of 25 women having eczema of thumhs, index and middle fingers, 1st and 2nd web spaces, palmar and dorsal aspect of hands. Patch tests were read after 48 and 72 hours and graded as ICDRG. Out of them we obtained positive results in 20(80%), with single allergen positivity in 6 (24%) an11 multiple allergen positivity in 14 (56%).

Peripheral T-lymphocyte counts in seborrhoeic keratosis
RR Mittal, Jindal Sonal
May-June 2001, 67(3):128-128
PMID:28615565
One hundred and forty-eight cases of clinically diagnosed seborrhoeic keratoses and 12 of stuccokeratoses were selected from Dermato Venereology department of Rajendra Hospital, Patiala, during a period of 15 months. Histopathology confirmed that 123 out of 148 cases were of seborrhoeic keratosis and 8 out of 12 were of stuccokeratosis. T-lymphocyte counts in histopathologically confirmed cases were done by Thomson's E-rosette method (1977). Peripheral T-lymphocyte counts were statistically significantly increased in both seborrhoeic keratosis and stucco keratosis, thus revealing important role of cell mediated immunity in seborrhoeic keralosis.
