ABSTRACT: The dermatoglyphic f atures were studied in 390 patients (190 males and 200 females) of auto immune dermatoses. The findings were compared with 100 normal (50 males and 50 females) controls The loops in male patients and the whorls in females were increased significantly at the cost of other patterns particularly on first and fourth fingers in both the sexes and on fifth finger in females. The true palmar patterns were increased significantly in both the sexes on all palmer areas except interdigital areas in males and thenar areas in females. The distal displacement of axial triradli were increased in both the sexes. The total finger ridge counts were increased significantly in both the sexes.
