AbstractA retrospective study of 32 patients of exfoliative dermatitis revealed greater affliction of the mates than the females. The condition is frequently observed in third to seventh decade. The duration of the disease was usually short. In majority of cases it was possible to find out the etiologic agents, drugs and topical application being the commonest. The presenting features of the conditions were classical. Investigations were not of much assistance, though they are imperative to know the implication of systemic organs. The -histopathology was usually of nonspecific nature, but it is desired to undertake this procedure for finding out the primary skin disorder.
