January-March 1999, 44(1):20-21
A 45 year old male presented with an erythematous plaque involving the entire face and extending on to the front of neck of 23 years duration, without any history of remission of exacerbation. A skin biopsy revealed collection of lymphocytes in the dermis without follicle formation, around the blood vessels and appendages, consistent with histopathology of jessner’s lymphocytic infiltration. Patient responded dramatically to chloroquine with flattening of the lesion within 2 months.

Pruritus Gravidarum
Devinder Mohan Thappa
January-March 1999, 44(1):1-5
Pruritus is a common symptom during pregnancy in 3-14% of all pregnancies. Pregnant women are as susceptible as non-pregnant women to ordinary pruritic skin disorders, but there are certain disorders, peculiar to pregnancy called as specific dermatoses of pregnancy. All these specific dermatoses of pregnancy are associated with primary skin lesions except pruritus gravidarum, which was only secondary skin lesions like excoriation marks. The incidence of pruritus gravidarum varies from 0.02 to2.4%. Several reports have shown a significantly increased incidence of prematurity, antepartum foetal distress and postpartum haemorrhage among these cases. Hence, a careful monitoring of pregnancy is advised in all such cases. Hence, a careful monitoring of pregnancy is advised in all such cases.

Absorption Spectrum Of Soaps And Oils : Determination and Its Significance
C.R Srinivas, G.R Kanthraj, Ravindra Kamath, P Uma Devi
January-March 1999, 44(1):6-6
Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation following photo toxic reaction due to cosmetics may account for pigmentation in some cases. The objective was to determine the absorption spectrum of commonly used soaps and hair oils available in Indian marker. By using UV-visible absorption spectrophotometer, the absorption spectrum of soaps and hair oils were determined. The mean absorption spectrum was 218 nm. Since none of the commonly used soaps and hair oils showed significant absorption in the range of 290-400 nm, we conclude that products tested are not responsible for photo toxic reaction or photo toxicity induced hyper pigmentation.

Haemangioma with thrombocytopaenia, known as kasabach merritt syndrome, is usually reported in association with large haemangiomas. However, it may be associated with multiple small angiomatous naevil. We report a case of angiokeratoma of Fordyce with underlying cavernous heamangioma, who developed kasabach merritt syndrome and was treated by excision of the scrotum.

Relationship Between Donor Graft Area And Area Of Surgical Repigmentation
Koushik Lahiri, S.R Sengupta
January-March 1999, 44(1):11-14
A total of 1742 grafts were placed over 177 lesions on 29 regions in 110 individuals with stable cutaneous achromia. Sixty-seven of them were female and forty-three male. Age ranged between 6 and 71 years. Cases were followed up to a maximum period of 2 years. The extent of maximum pigment spread (MPS) ranged between 0 and 10 mm, with an overall average of approximately 5.5mm. Based on this finding, it was calculated that from a 2mm donor graft an average of 132.66 mm2 areas is regimented which is almost 42 times larger than the area of the graft itself.

K Karthikeyan, R Hemanth Kumar, Devinder Mohan Thappa, Mariette D'Souza, Sirisha Singh
January-March 1999, 44(1):8-10
Toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) is a severe mucocutaneous reaction pattern characterized by fever, systemic toxicity, tenderness, erythema and wide-spread exfoliation. A retrospective analysis from January 1990 to December 1996 was undertaken to see the changing trends and outcome of this disorder in a third world country. A total of eleven cases were found. Their mean age was 33.09 years and male to female ratio was 2.6:1. Various drugs implicated were paracetamol (2 cases), co-trimoxazole (2 cases), aspirin (1 case), thiacetazone (1 case), streptomycin (1 case), etc. On an average, the patients developed TEN at the interval of 4.68 days following the drug intake. Fever was presenting symptom in all cases and burning sensation preceded it in 6 of them. Percentage area. Involved ranged from 40% to 90%. Other target areas involved in order of decreasing frequency were oral mucosa (9 cases) genitalia (8 cases), eye (5 cases), palms and soles (3 cases). Oral prednisolonoe therapy was started in all cases in the range of 20 to 80 mg. According to the severity, extent of lesion and body weight. Epithelisation of denuded areas took an average of 10.6 days. Complications in the form of secondary infection (3 cases), septicaemia and death (1 case) and symblepheron formation (1 case) were noted.
