October-December 1989, 34(4):75-80
ABSTRACT: A total number of 148 patients, comprising of 101 males and 47 females diagnosed as drug eruptions were reviewed. The youngest patient was eight and the oldest 73 years. The mean age was 34 years. 75 (50.7 percent) patients were in the age group to 20 to 40 years. In 88(59.5 percent) pruritus was the chief associated symptom. 116 (78.4 percent) developed eruptions within 2 weeks. 29 (19.6 percent) had single site involvement. 92 (62.2 percent) had lesions at more than one site and 25 (16.9 percent) patients had generalised skin and mucous membrane involvement. The commonest skin reactions were fixed drug eruptions in 39 (26.4 percent) cases. Almost all types of drug eruptions were observed. The eruptions were caused by 37 different drugs, the commonest being sulphonamides in 28 (18.9 percent) cases. Systemic side effects were recorded in 13 (8.8 percent) patients. 76 (51.4 percent) were treated with topical medicaments. Out of the remaining, 33 (22.3 percent) were managed by antihistamines and 26 (17.6 percent) by steroids in addition to topical therapy. No treatment was required in 13 (8.8 percent). 117 (79.1 percent) were treatment as out patients and 31 (20.9 percent) were hospitalised.

Study of serum calcium and magnesium in leprosy
N Saxena, RP Sharma, VS Singh
October-December 1989, 34(4):48-51
ABSTRACT: Serum calcium and magnesium levels were determined in 60 patients suffering from different types of leprosy. These findings were evaluated in comparison to 20 normal subjects serving as controls. Serum calcium levels were significantly decreased in lepromatous leprosy (6.9 plus minues 0.9 mg/dl p less than 0.001). The decrease in serum calcium levels was related with the severity and the duration of the leprosy lesions. The serum calcium levels in borderline and tuberculoid forms were also low but were not statistically significant. A significant decrease in serum magnesium levels, was observed in all types of lepromatous leprosy patients showed an highly significant decrease in serum magnesium levels (1.10 plus minues 0.18 mg/dl p less than 0.001).

Demonstration of acid fast bacilli in the circulating immune complex of leprosy cases and contacts
S Chaudhary, SK Hazra, SK Dey, B Saha
October-December 1989, 34(4):52-55
ABSTRACT: Though bacilleamia in leprosy is an established fact but has not yet been possible to demonstrate acid fast bacill (AFB) in substantial number of cases. This is due to the fact that AFB remain bound in the serum as immune complex (IC). Dissociation of IC results release of antigen (AFB). Following IC dissociation it has been possible to demonstrate AFB in 100 percent of lepromatous cases, 60 percent of tuberculoid cases and 20 percent of contacts of active lepromatous cases.
