Dermatological changes in tetraplegics and paraplegics.
PN Arora, S Grover
July-September 1994, 39(3):43-51
ABSTRACT: Dermatological changes in paralytic patients (56 tetraplegics and 44 paraplegics) in 16 to 65 years age group were recorded. Traumatic aetiology was responsible for cord involvement in 89 percent (road traffic accident 33 percent, fall from height 30 percent, injuries during activity at sports/games 17 percent, battle injuries 8 percent, blunt injury to back 1 percent) and in the remaining 11 percent nontraumatic causes accounted for tetraplegia/ paraplegia. All patients were evaluated for level of cord involvement. Commonest level was cervical cord (C1-C6) in 44 percent followed by dorsolumbar (D 11 to L1) in 35 percent, dorsal (D1 to D10) in 16 percent and lumbar (L2 to L5) in 5 percent patients. Dermatological changes recorded were pressure sores (52 percent), superficial fungal infections, xerosis and secondary ichthyosis (42 percent), stasis pigmentation (39 percent), nail dystrophy (21 percent), alopecia of denervated skin (20 percent), seborrheic keratosis (14 percent), acrochordons (12 percent), acne vulgaris on the posterior aspect of trunk (11 percent), and seborrhea capitis (5 percent)

Localisation of pemphigus vulgaris to oral mucosae : case report.
AJ Kanwar, S. Dhar
July-September 1994, 39(3):52-53
ABSTRACT: Oral mucosa plays an imortant role in the natural history of pemphigus vulgaris. In approximately 50-70 percent of patients, the disease starts in the oral cavity, 1-4 and the lesions in oral mucosae preceed the cutaneous lesions by several months. This time period is variable; On an average a generalized bullous phase in most patients occurs some 5 or more months after the onset of the oral lesions. 1-3 very rarely lesions remain restricted to oral mucosa (e) for prolonged period. We herein report two such cases recently seen by us

Oral verrucae : a case report.
S Handa, B. Kumar
July-September 1994, 39(3):56-57
ABSTRACT: Papilloma virus infections of the oral cavity have long been recognized and various clinical expressions have been characterised including verruca vulgaris, focal epithelial hyperplasia (Heck's disease), multiple papillomas and condyloma acuminata 1,2. Concurrent papilloma virus infection of the genital and oral tissues has also been reported. Verrucase on the oral mucosa are not that common and usually present as sessile exophytic growths which may at times be very difficult to differentiate from oral condylomas and papillomas clinically.

ABSTRACT: Tuberculosis of breast is rare, often associated with tuberculosis elsewhere. Although the first case was documented as early as 1829 1, only about 500 cases have been reported so far. Most of these come from Asia and South Africa. It is commonly misdiagnosed as pyogenic breast abscess 2. We here report a case recently seen by us.
