Srabani Ghosh, Swapan Kr Lahiri, Ajit Kr Dutta
January-March 1995, 40(1):32-35
The clinical entity PDA mainly affects lower socio- economic group in tropical countries. Its cure/control poses a challenge to dermatologists. To evaluate a low – cost drug therapy, dapsone was tried among patients of chronic folliculitis of legs along with tropical providone – iodine application. Forty- two patients who came for regular follow – up revealed satisfactory result with marked improvement in about 70% cases with minimal side- effects. The antibacterial and immunomodulatory action of dapsone may be beneficial in these cases. The possible role of androgen triggering effect remains an open question in its pathogenesis and chronicity.
