Sandipan Dhar, Subrata Malakar
April-June 1999, 44(2):58-60
In this prospective study, sixty patients, 28 male and 32 female aged 7 to 48 (mean 12.5) years, were divided into 3 equal groups. Patients in gr 1 applied 5% doxepin hydrochloride cream over the eczematous lesions twice daily for 2 weeks. Group II patients were treated with clobetasol propionate (0.05%) cream twice daily for 2 weeks. In gr III, the patients received topical clobetasol propionate twice daily for the first week and doxepin hydrochloride cream twice daily for the 2nd week. The improvement was measured by ‘subjective sympom’ (SS) and ‘objective sing’ (OS) scoring systems. Improvement in SS was maximum in gr III moderate in gr I and mild in gr II. Improvement in OS was maximum in gr III followed by gr II and gr I. Lichenified lesions showed no improvement. Somnolence and stinging at the local site were the adverse effects complained by 8(40%) and 3(15%) patients in gr I respectively, 2(10%) patients had both in gr III.

Reinfection And Bilateral Infection : Two Rare Manifestations Of Sporotrichosis
P. K Maiti, Debabrata Bandyaopadhyay
April-June 1999, 44(2):73-75
The localization of sporotrichosis is determined by the site of dermal injury by means of which the infective spores are introduced into subcutanceous tissue, but the reports of reinfection or bilateral infection are extremely rare. Although the probability of such occurrence is high in endemic areas, the rare incidence may be due to acquired host defense, a subject of much speculation. Two such rare cases are presented and some reports of cross infections of the disease are reviewed.
