AbstractA Total of 80 cases, comprising of 40 controls and 40 vitiligo cases, were studied for, dermatoglyphic pattern and ridge count. In males with vitiligo increased incidence of radial loops of 2nd fingers and increased incidence of arches were observed while in females, increased incidence of ulnar loops on 3rd digit was observed in the present study. Difference in patterns in cases of vitiligo as compared to normal, was statistically insignificant. No significant change was observed in total ridge count in vitiligo cases.
