Serological Survey For Syphilis Among Industrial Workers
PV Sathe, GV Upe
November-December 1978, 44(6):355-358
A serological survey for syphilis among employees of two newly established factories in Aurangabad city was carried out. A coverage of 90.8% of the employees was achieved. Among 1090 workers examined, 29 seropositive cases (2,66%) were detected. Of these, 28 belonged to the age group of 21 to 30 years. No statistically significant difference in the prevalence was noticed in the married and unmarried groups. The seropositivity rates of blood'donors and ante-natal cases, often used for estimation of prevalence of venereal diseases in a community, and the seropositivity rate of industrial workers of Delhi, Poona and Aurangabad for similar period were studied and show divergence. Thus seropositivity rate of newly recruited industrial workers may not be appropriate for estimation of prevalence. However, as this group is particularly vulnerable to causal social factors, the rate may be a good indicator of the incidence of venereal diseases in an area.

Fifty consecutive cases of leucorrhoea that attended the STD training and Demonstration Centre, Safdang Hospital, New Delhi, were treated with Myron. Routine investigations, including smear and culture were done. Monilial infection and infection due to T. vaginalis were predominant. Myron was used in cases of mod erate leucorrhoea and Myron + Bangshil was used in case of leucorrhoea with profuse discharge. Assessment was made by repeat investigations and symptomatic relief. It was found that Myron gave 88.0% satisfactory response in cases of leucorrhoea. This clinical trial shows that Myron can be used beneficially and available for investigations and smear culture.

Four hundred thirty four cases of contact dermatitis were investigated for various etiological agents. Allergic -dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis constituted 1.8% and 0.4% of the total numbers of dermatology patients seen during the study period. Males (78.6%) predominated over females (21.4 %) and maximum number of cases (57 %) were in the age group 20-49 years. Various topical medicaments were the commonest contactants (40%). Vesicular fluid in case of allergic contact dermatitis showed preponderance of lymphocytes.

Value of Intradermal Tests Compared To Diet Elimination and Provocation Test in the Diagnosis of Food Urticaria
JS Pasricha, Y Minocha
November-December 1978, 44(6):331-333
Out of 40 patients having urticaria suspected to be caused by foods, only 22 patients were relieved after elimination of one or more foods. The foods found responsible were rice, milk, moong, egg, potato, wheat, massoor, tea, lobia, orange, chicken and peas in that order of frequency. Intradermal tests to the corresponding food antigens were positive in only 46% of these cases. In 18 patients the urticaria was not relieved even by complete diet elimination and was therefore not being caused by any food. But I I of these patients showed positive intradennal tests to one or more antigens; once again indicating a poor correlation. Since the diet elimination and provocation test is far more reliable, this evidence is considered to explain at least partly, the poor results of treatment based on intradermal tests.

November-December 1978, 44(6):340-344
In sixty individuals, 30 normal control and 30 cases suffcrin from psoriasis - G6 PD estimation has been carried out in serum and erythrocytes. Serun activity was not detected in any of the individuals. Non-significant higher levels of G6 PD in erythrocytes were detected in psoriatic. vels were significantly higher when disease process involved more than 75% of the body area. No relationship of levels with phase of disease could be established.
