A Clinico-Microscopic Corroboration Of Surgical Repigmentation - A Study Of 30 Cases
Koushik Lahiri, Sujit Ranjan Sengupta
July-September 1998, 43(3):99-101
A total of 30 cases of stable vitiligo with a positive response to punch grafting constituted the sample population. Nineteen of them were female and eleven male, age ranged between 12 and 45 years. Sixteen to twenty weeks after punch grafting, a biopsy each from normal, vitiligenous and surgically repigmented areas, were performed. Sections were studied microscopically using H&E and mason-fontana stains. The microscopic findings demonstrated a district clinico-microscopic corroboration between normal and surgically induced repigmented sites in cases of stable vitiligo.

Rajeshree G Chavan, Rajiv Joshi, Uday S Khopkar, Vaishali A Phadke, S.L Wadhwa
July-September 1998, 43(3):105-107
Forty live psoriatics (40 chronic plaque, 5 stable erythrodermic) were treated with PUVA therapy. The psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) was used for evaluation. The average pretreatment PASI score was 14.6 (range 7.4-35.4) in chronic plaque psoriasis and 39.9 (22.3-52.2) in psoriatic erythroderma. Patients were given oral 8-methoxypsoralen (0.6mg/kg), thrice a week with initial UVA exposure of 3 joulrd/cm2 and increments of 1 joulrd/cm2 every week till complete clearance or up to 12 weeks whichever was earlier. After clearing, patients were put on maintenance therapy. The average response at the end of 8 weeks was 84.5% reduction in PASI score in chronic plaque and 86.5% in erythroderma. Patients received a cumulative dose of 186 and 165 joules/cm2 respectively. Based on the time required for clearance, patients could be divided into rapid responders (4 weeks, 14 cases), average responders (8 weeks, 21 cases), slow responders (12 weeks, 5 cases) and non-responders (5 cases). One patient of chronic plaque type developed pustular psoriasis. No other serious side effect was observed. Hence, systemic photochemotherapy is effective in inducing long-lasting remissions in plaque and even stable erythrodermic psoriasis. More than 70% cases were maintained in remission at 6 months, 58% at 1 year and 32% at 2 years.

Kalyan Chakraborty, Aloke Kumar Roy
July-September 1998, 43(3):108-110
Twenty patients of dulusion of parasitosis received oral pimozide (PMZ) 2 mg daily for 3 months. Trihexyphenydyl hydrochloride (THP) was administered in a dose of 4 mg daily in young adults and 2 mg daily in elderly patients for prevention of extrapyramidal side effects (EPS). Within 1-2 week of initiation of therapy, sixteen patients responded completely. In four patients, dosage of PMZ had to be increased to 4 mg daily and they responded 3-4 week after initiation of therapy. Treatment was continued for 3 months and all were symptom free. Following discontinuation of therapy, delusion reappeared but disappeared after reinstitution of PMZ therapy. EPS developed in two young patients resulting in discontinuation of pimozide.
