AbstractPathogenesis of recurrent pyodermas is far from clear, but recent literature has stressed the importance of host defences especially the neutrophil function. Neutrophil chemotaxis was estimated in 32 patients of recurrent pyodermas and in equal number of controls by the skin window method of Rebuck and Crowley. No significant variation could be detected in the neutrophil chemotaxis among controls and patients (P>0.05%).
