A comparison of systemic photochemotherapy with 8- methoxypsoralen (8-mop) and with trimethylpsoralen (tmp) in vitiligo
Vandana P Mhaske, Vaishali A Phadke, Rajiv Joshi, Uday S Khopkar, SL Wadhwa
July-August 1998, 64(4):176-179
Oral 8-MOP and TMP were compared in the PUVA therapy for vitiligo. Group A (25 c.ases) was initiated on 0.3 mg/kg of 8-MOP with 1 /2 Joule/cm[2] of UVA and weekly increments of 1 /2 Joule/ cm[2] and Group B was started on 0.6 mg/kg of TMP with 1 Joule/cm[2] of UVA and weekly increments of 1 Joule/cm[2], Therapy was given thrice a week. Repigmentation was evaluated by using a 0-6 scale. At the end of 60 sittings, an acceptable cosmetic response wasseen over the face, neck and upper extremities in both groups, while trunk and lower extremities showed lesser response. 8-MOP gave earlier response, needing a lowercumulative UVA dose i.e. 75 J/ cm[2] as compared to TMP i.e. 106 J/cm[2]. Phototoxicity was seen more often with 8-MOP. In conclusion, in Indians, 8-MOP is the drug of choice in PUVA therapy of vitiligo provided precautions against phototoxicity are adequate.

A regionwise comparative study of the extent of post punch graft surgical repigmentation in cutaneous achromia
Koushik Lahiri, SR Sengupta
July-August 1998, 64(4):173-175
One hundred and ten cases of stable cutaneous achromia constituted the sample population, of which 67 were females and 43 males. Age ranged between 6 and 71 years. A total of 1742 grafts were placed over 177 lesions on 29 regions and the cases were followed up to a maximum period of 2 years. The extent of maximum pigment spread (MPS) was noted in different regions of the body. It was observed that exposed parts exhibited better outcome vis-a-vis covered and shadowed part. MPS ranged between 0 to 10 mm., with an overall average of approximately 5.5mm.

Natural history of herpes zoster in the era of aids
Dandavate Varsha, Hira Subhash, Oberai Chetan
July-August 1998, 64(4):169-172
Seventy- four consecutive patients with herpes zoster (HZ) in Mumbai were recruited into the study to determine its natural history. Thirty- five (47.3%) with HZwere Infected with HIV-1/2. HZ+HIV+ and HZ+HIV- were demographically similar but HZ+H1V+ were clinically different; the latter were characterised by multidermatomal involvement of thoracic dermatomes below T6 or that of trigeminal nerve, recurrent episodes, bullous lesions and 17/35 had associated illnesses such as severe weightloss,recurrent fever, chronic cough, active tuberculosis and oral candidiasis. Significant difference in the course of healing, incidence of secondary bacterial infection and scaming emerged between the two groups after day-10, HZ+H1V+ individuals had vesicles and ulcers persisting for significantly longer time with frequent sequelae of post inflammatory pigmentation and post herpetic neuralgia. In areas where resources are limited for health information. such clinical differences between HZ+H1V+ and HZ+HIV- will serve to identify individuals with HIV infection in dermatologic clinic. These findings will also be helpful for early diagnosis of HIV infection, associated opportunistic infections and prevent their secondary transmission through appropriate interventions.

Antigen mapping in hereditary epidermolysis bullosa
CR Srinivas, A Sandra, SD Shenoi, S Pai, P Dinesh
July-August 1998, 64(4):180-182
Standard immunofluorescence tests are not positive in the various inherited epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Using antibodies to known antigens present in the basement membrane zone, antigen mapping can be done by immuno fluorescence, to determine the level of blistering and establish the diagnosis. We report three cases of junctional EB and one case of dystrophic EB in whom the diagnosis was confirmed by antigen mapping.
