OBJECTIVES: To determine the pattern of psychiatric morbidity prevalent among leprosy patients and to compare it with two control groups; those suffering from Tinea vesicolor and Normal subjects.

The subjects were assessed for psychiatric morbidity through a clinical interview with PSE-9. RESULTS: The prevalence of psychiatric morbidity among leprosy patients (580/1000) was significantly more than those with tinea vesicolor patients (182/1000) and normal subjects (148/1000) (p < 0...

Histological studies were carried out on 25 patients with various morphological types of pityriasis vesicolor. In addition to the usual features, acanthosis nigricans-like picture in papular lesions, dilated blood vessels in erythematous lesions were observed. In sections stained with Periodic acid Schiff's stain (PAS) absence of granular layer in areas of close approximation of filaments to the stratum malpighii and presence of only mycelia in the vicinity of acrosyringium were found unusual, interesting and are new findings to our knowledge...

Clotrimazole is a new antifungal agent which is effective topically in dermatophytosis, cutaneous candidiasis, and tinea vesicolor. The authors performed a controlled double-blind clinical trial comparing topical clotrimazole with its vehicle in the treatment of 66 patients with dermatophytic infections of the skin of the feet. Clotrimazole proved to be effective in the treatment of tinea pedis of both the interdigital and the plantar hyperkeratotic types.
