This study was done amongst 2550 consecutive skin patients in our male OPD. Infective dermatoses was seen in 36.41% and allergic diseases in 29.88% of our patients. New cases of leprosy accounted for 5.64% of our cases, which we consider is a disturbing trend. Occupational dermatoses was seen 15.24% of our cases. Farmers and agricultural labourers comprised the largest segment (37.72%) of our patients.
