A quantitative assessment of cutaneous thermal sensation was undertaken in 12 psoriasis, 7 morphoea and 12 vitiligo patients. The thermal sensory threshold (TST) was determined both at the lesion site and the lesion-Eree contralateral site (control) by an electronic device fitted with a probe and a temperature sensor. As the differences in T-ST between the contralateral regions hardly exc I eed I'C in normal individuals a difference in TSC was considered significant. It was observed that about 83% of psoriasis and 71% of morphoca cases showed a significant differencrin TST (3C), but no such difference existed among the vitiugo patients.
