Dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) In The Treatment Of Warts
S. P Chattopadhyay
January-March 2001, 46(1):26-29
Forty patients (male-25, female-15) of age group 15 to 46 years (mean 23 years) were attempted for contact sensitization with 0.5% -3% dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) solution. Thirty five cases could be hypersensitized. Out of these cases, 11(27.5%)cases responded fully with subsequent local application of 0.5-1% DNCB solution on the warts and another 32.5% cases showed moderate response while 40% of cases did not show any response. It was also seen that 77.5% of patients suffered from moderate to severe complication in the form of eczematous reaction. Pain and induration both on the site of hypersensitization and on sites away from it. The eczematous reaction subsided slowly over 2 to 4 weeks period without leaving any permanent scar. DNCB (topical) could be used for a cure under direct supervision in the selected cases of verrucae not responding to standard treatment by initial sensitization and thereafter direct application over the warts. There was a marginal increased tuberculin (PPD) response after hypersensitization process with DNCB.

Non-Venereal Dermatoses In Male Genital Region-Prevalence And Patterns In A Referral Centre In South India
K Karthikeyan, T. J Jaisankar, Devinder Mohan Thappa
January-March 2001, 46(1):18-22
A series of 100 male patients with non-venereal dermatoses of external genitalia were screened amongst patients visiting Dermatology OPD of JIPMER, Pondicherry from Aug ’97 to March ’99. The overall prevalence was found to be 14.1 per 10,000. Non-venereal dermatoses were common in the 21-40 years age group. Most of the patients (74%) belonged to labourer class. A total of 25 different non-venereal dermatoses were studied. Genital vitiligo was the most common disorder accounting for 16 cases. Sebaceous cyst of the scrotum was present 13 patients. Among infections and infestations, scabies was observed in 9 patients. Ariboflavinosis was seen in 9 cases. Other disorders encountered were calcinosis scrotum. Iymphangiectasia of the scrotum. Lichen simplex chronicus. Fixed drug eruption, angiokeratoma of Fordyce, lichen sclerosus et atrophicus etc. The study has been quite useful in understanding the clinical and aetiological characteristics of various types of non-veneral dermatoses in males in this subcontinen of Asia.

Systemic Corticosteroid Therapy And The Hypothalamopituitary-Adrenal Axis
M Ramam, Leishiwon Kumrah
January-March 2001, 46(1):1-7
Adrenal crisis due to suppression of the HPA axis by systemic corticosteroid therapy is a much feared complication which, however, appears to be quite uncommon. In an individual patient, the status of the HPA axis cannot be reliably predicted based on the dose and duration of therapy. Further, the response to stress does not always correlate with the results of tests of HPA function. However, HPA axis suppression is generally associated with daily dosing, high doses and prolonged duration of therapy. The dose, duration and schedule of administration of corticosteroids should be tailored to the needs of the individual patient and his disease. HPA axis suppression need not be considered in acute, inflammatory diseases. In other steroid-responsive dermatoses, intermittent dosing schedules are likely to produce fewer side effects including suppression of the HPA axis. As a measure of caution, patients who have received systemic corticosteroids in the past may be administered supplemental corticosteroids during stressful situations (though not all of them will need it).

Arun Sarkar, S. K Dey, D. N Gangopadhyay
January-March 2001, 46(1):23-25
The present study was taken up to find the incidence of Australia antigen (HbsAg) in patients having sexually transmitted diseases (STD). One hundred patients attending an urban STD clinic in a medical college in Calcutta were considered for evaluation. Study revealed that the highest number of patients in this series belong to 21-30 years of age group. Male (88%) outnumbered female (12%). Seventy percent were from lower income group. Majority of the cases (95%) had extramarital contact and community sex workers were the main source of infection (78%). Majority of the cases were heterosexual. Only 3% were homosexual and 2% were bisexual. Most of the patiens (83%) had multiple exposures. Four patients and one spouse of the patient had history of jaundice in the recent past but none of them was HbsAg positive. In the present study, the incidence of HbsAg in patients was found to be 6 percent. All these patients were heterosexual and had no past history of STD.
