Efficacy And Safety Of Chemical Peel And Cryo Peel (Liquid Nitrogen) In Melasma
Rajiv Goyal, M K Singhi, Vinod Jain
January-March 2005, 50(1):27-28
Melasma is a common problem amenable to different peeling regimes. We evaluated the effects of 4 regimes that included glycolic acid alone and in combination with trichloroacetic acid and liquid nitrogen with 15 patients in each schedule. The peeling was done every 2 weeks for 3 months. The response rate with each of the treatment schedules was good (p<0.01), but there was no difference in improvement with different treatments (p<0.05). Occasional minor side effects were noticed that responded to simple measures and did not warrant discontinuation of theray.

Dermatological Disease Pattern In An Urban Institution Of Kolkata
Arup Das, Saswati Haldar, Jayasri Das, Gautam Mazumdar, Surajit Biswas, Joytirindranath Sarkar
January-March 2005, 50(1):22-24
A study of 36,58 8 new cases who attended the Dermatology OPD of the school of Tropical Medicine was carried out for the year 2002. Eczema (31.4%), pyoderma (14.36%), fungal infection (9.7%) and psoriasis (5.39%) were the major skin disease. In the leprosy clinic, 2100 new cases attended, of which 567 were PB and 1533 MB as per WHO classification. Skin smear was positive in181 cases, all of them were MB.

Effect Of Prologned Low-Dose Oral Asirin On The Oxidative Status Of Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells Of Active Vitiligo
Mohammad Z A Zailaie
January-March 2005, 50(1):9-16
There is a growing body of evidence that the etiology of vitiligo may relate primarily to an imbalance in the oxidative status the epidermal melanocytes and other cells that include peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBCM). Consequently, this pilot placebo-controlled study was designed to evaluate the effect of long-term (12 weeks) oral administration of single low-dose (300mg) of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, aspirin on the antioxidant enzymes (catalase, glutathione peroxides (GPx), and superoxide dismutase (SOD)) activities and the intracellular levels of reduced glutathione (GSH) and lipid peroxidation of PBCM in patients with vitiligo in the active phase. Thirty two adult patients with active vitiligo (18 females and 14 males) and 32 normal healthy age-and sex-matched subjects were recruited. The vitiligo patients were divided into two equal groups; one group received a single daily dose of oral aspirin and the other one received placebo for 12 consecutive weeks. The antioxidant enzymes, GSH and the marker of lipid peroxidation, malonidaldehyde (MDA) were determined in the supernatant of PBCM homogenates of vitiligo patients (aspirin-treated and placebo groups) before the start of treatment and at the end of treatment period. The determination of these cell markers was carried out with the use of commercially available kits, according to standardized spectrophotometric methods. Compared with the placebo group, the aspirin-treated group of vitiligo patients showed significant increases in catalase and GPx activities (p<0.001 and p<0.05 respectively) and a significant decrease in MDA concentration (p<0.05). Parallel to these changes there was a considerable improvement in the disease activity in all aspirin- treated patients, as well significant repigmentation in two at the end of the study period.

Cutaneous Adverse Drug Reactions In A South Indian Tertiary Care Center
J James, M Sushma, S Guido, J Elizabeth
January-March 2005, 50(1):17-21
The clinical spectrum of cutaneous adverse drug reactions (ADRs) of out-patients, in-patients admitted in the department of dermatology and also cases referred from other departments was recorded over a period of one year (January 2000 to January 2001) by the department of Pharmacology in collaboration with the department of Dermatology. The causal link between drug and the reaction was established by causality assessment method proposed by Kramer et al. A total of 129 patients diagnosed to have cutaneous ADRs were included in the study. By causality assessment, ADRs were classified as certain-3, probable-97, possible-26 and unlikely 3.Only certain and probable cases were considered for analysis (n=100). The common types of ADRs were exanthemas (35), urticaria (14), Stevens-Johnson syndrome (14) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (4). The drugs implicated for cutaneous ADRs were antibiotics (53), antiepileptics (19) and NSAIDs (10). Antibiotics were responsible for causing maximum number of exanthemas (68.57%) followed by utricaria (57.14%) and fixed drug eruptions (55%).

January-March 2005, 50(1):25-26
All new female patients of leprosy attending the dermatology OPD of a rural medical college on North Bengal for 1 year were studied to elicit the clinico-epide miological pattern. Out of 650 new cases of leprosy, 207 were female, with a male to female ratio of about 2:1. The majority of them belonged to the age group of 31-40 years and most of them were from rural area. Tuberculoid type was the commonest Fifteen percent cases gave history of intra-familial contact and another 7% had extra-familial. Pregnancy had a deleterious effect on the course of leprosy.
