Clinical and Lipid Profile Studies in Xanthelasma Palpebrarum
B. S. N Reddy, Gurmohan Singh, SS Pandey, D Tiwari
May-June 1983, 49(3):127-131
The clinical cand lipid abnormalities in 45 cases of xanthelasma are reported. Their findings suggest that xanthelasma is seen in some patients as an isolated clinical symptom with normal serum lipid level% representing a local derangement of cellular lipid metabolism. Nevertheless it is noted in many patients with moderate elevation of different serum lipid fractions without any other clinical manifestations, occurring probably as a resultof benign derangement of systemic lipid metabolism. Less frequently, it is observed with significant elevation of serum lipid levels in association with certain grave abnormalities like hypertension, ischaemic heart disease,' familial hypercholesterolemia, familial xanthomatosis, diabetes etc. Thus it is inferred that the symptom xanthelasma signifies disturbed lipid metabolism of several and the, patient needs thorough investigation.

Comparative Study of Econazole and Povidone Iodine (betanide) in Management of Dermatophytosis
NC Sethi
May-June 1983, 49(3):102-105
Econazole, a synthetic imidazole derivative has been compared for its curative effect with povidone - iodine (Betadine) by an open trial on 35 cases of dermatophytosis. In 30 patients Econiazole or povidone- iodine was applied twice a day after carrying out a KOH test and fungal culture. Econazole nitrate (1% cream) was found Clo bring about rapid recovery from the disease as compared to povidone - iodine which was used in 5% strength. 2 patients who developed local allergic reaction in the form of pruritus, redness and oedema after Econazole were found to give positive patch test reaction to both- Econazole and Miconazole. Econazole was found to be a very potent drug in the management of dermatophytosis.

Dermatoglyphics in Darier's Disease
S Premalatha
May-June 1983, 49(3):122-126
9 cases of Darier's disease were studied. All probands showed typical clinical lesions of Darier's disease. The clinical diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological study. Study of palmar dermatoglyphics by the standard Ink and Roller method revealed certain characteristic features. Whorl pattern was the predominant finger tip pattern observed in both sexes. Ridge Dissociation, wide flexion don creases, white lines and white dots were the main features found in those cases. Sydney line and extra digital transverse crease were also observed. The finger tip pattern in famale probands was found to be statistically significant when compard with that of controls.As significant dermatoglyphic findings have been oberved in the present study, an analysis of the palmar dermatoglyphics can be used as an important tool of significance in the study of Darier's disease . As the development of dermatoglyphic pattern in utero is strongly influenced by genetic factors, it is worthwhile, applying this mathematical science of genetics in various genodermatoses.

Cytodiagnosis in Contact Dermatitis
K Pavithran
May-June 1983, 49(3):99-101
The role of cytology in the diagnosis and differentiation of contact dermatitis of two mojor types-allergic and irritant is evaluated. Study in 10 cases of allergic contact dermatitis and 5 cases of irritant dermatitis revealed that lymphocytes were the predominant cells in cytologic smears in the allergic contact dermatitis. But the polymorphs predominated in primary irritant dermatitis. It is concluded that cytology. Will be of help in differentiating the two types of contact dermatitis.

A Study of 218 Drug Eruptions
MZ Mani, Mary Mathew
May-June 1983, 49(3):109-117
Two hundred and eithteen instances of drug eruptions were observed in 210 patients, during a period of 5,1/2 years. The incidence was 1.2% of all new dermatology cases and the male-female ratio was 1.5 : 1. The mean age of patients in this series was- observed to be 33.8 years. Exanthematous eruptions were most frequent (27.5%), followed closely by flxed drug eruptions (26.6%) Urticaria was third in frequency, but the incidence was considerably less (9.6%). The serious eruptions of Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis together constituted 7.8%. Eruptions due to antituberculous drugs accounted for 15.6% of the total. The drugs which were responsible for the largest number

Oxytetracycline in Pyoderma
AK Sharma, R Gupta, Uma Saxena, RK Jain
May-June 1983, 49(3):118-121
One hundred patients with moderate to severe pyoderma were treated with oral oxytetracycline. The most common organism isolated were coagulase positive Staph pyogenes and Str betahemolyticus. Of 100 patients; 87 showed a successful therapeutic response. The predictive value of in vitro test for bacterial susceptibility to oxytetracycline (30 mcg disc) was 88% for "sensitive" reports but 17% for "resistant" reports.Judged by clinical response the incidence of false sensitive reports was 12% (9/87) but that of false resistant reports was 83 (22/26).

Study of the Skin in the Viciniw of Well Merginated Lesions of TT and BT Leprosy
MA Tutakne, KD Das, SK Agprwal, AR Banerjee, RN Verma
May-June 1983, 49(3):132-135
Well-defined margin in a patch of leprosy indicates good cell mediated immunity (CMI) and containment of the disease process within the lesion. A study was hence undertaken to ascertain if histological changes in well marginated lesion are confined to the involved area alone or extend into the surrounding normal looking skin.
