A Spectrophotometric Study of Eryrhrocyte Porphyrins in Patients of Atopic Dermatitis
RL Singh, F Handa, KS Sidhu
A quantitative assay of porphyrins in blood'of thirty patients with atopic dermatitis was done. Rimington's technique for the estimation of porphyrins was employed. Porphyrin levels in thirty cases of atopic dermatitis were compared with levels in ten controls. No satistically significant difference in porphyrin levels was observed be the study and control groups. Porphyrin were also compared between patients with and without history of photosensitivity. The, erythrocyte coproporphyrin in patients with photosensitivity was significantly higher than in patient without Photosensitivity.
