The study of hydration power of stratum corneum of lesions show highly significant poor water-uptake at low temperatures (p less than 0.001), a defect not recorded after removal of water soluble fractions. Secondly, the lesions show significant poor water-diffusive power (p less than 0.001). The findings suggest a qualitative alteration in the stratum… (More)
Studies have been made on the semen of three categories (borderline, borderline tuberculoid and lepromatous) of leprosy patients to evaluate the seminal biochemical constituents viz. fructose, glycerylphosphorylcholine and acid phosphatase besides the physical properties viz. volume, pH, liquefaction time, sperm density and sperm motility. In all categories… (More)
Abnormalities in Stratum Corneum (SC) in leprosy lesions have been demonstrated as evidenced by poor hydration power of SC and increased SC turn-over. In continuation of the same study morphometric studies of the SC in leprosy was undertaken as per measurement of the Thickening of the SC, Mean epidermal thickness and Basal layer: Granular layer cell ratio… (More)
Two cases of leprosy--one Tuberculoid and the other Borderline are reported. The Tuberculoid patch shows sharply defined hyperpigmented border whereas in the Borderline patient, diffuse hyperpigmentation is present around the lesion. The cases are reported for documentation due to rare clinical pressentation.
Stratum corneum showed increased proliferative activity on the patches of leprosy as evidenced by a significantly fast stratum corneum turnover time (p 0.001) measured by fluorescent staining technic with dansyl chloride. These findings suggest imperfect keratinization on the patches of leprosy leading to formation of structurally weak stratum corneum.
