Five cases were found KOH Negative showed positive results on culture. The commonest clinical type found was tinea corporis (37.5 percent). This was followed by tinea cruris (25 percent), tinea capitis (22.5 percent), tinea pedis affected (11.25 percent) and tinea barbae (3.75 percent).

PK Singh, SS Pandey, G Singh
January-March 1987, 32(1):15-18
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.

Bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma : a case report
RR Mittal, F Handa, K Gupta, JK Sadana
January-March 1987, 32(1):19-22
ABSTRACT: Bullous Ichthyosiform Erythroderma is a rare, genetically pathologically and clinically a distinct disease. The general health and expectation of life are usually normal and associated defects are unusual, but if epidermal defect is severe, death may occur in early infancy. Our patient had unusual features in the form of associated hepatomegaly, microcephaly short stature, open anterior fontanelle and deranged albumin, globin ratio. We are reporting this case of bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma due to these rare associated defects. To the best of our knowledge such associations in a case of bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma have not been reported earlierin Indian literature.
