patterns on right and left hands were analysed sex-wise and using mean and standard deviations the statistical significance was assessed.
features are thought to be inherited as autosomal dominant, recessive, single gene or polygenic with complete or incomplete penetrance and variable expression of genes.
Genetics of dermatoglyphic
asymmetry in Vaidyas of West Bengal, India.
studies in patients with Cooley's anaemia.
pattern has been in many non-chromosomal genetic disorder and other diseases whose aetiology may be influenced directly or indirectly by genetic disorder.
The first ever work for dermatoglyphics
was done somewhat around 3000 years back when Chinese used fingerprints to sign legal documents.
patterns are known to occur with genetic disorders like Mongolism, Turner's syndrome, Kline filter's syndrome etc.
Gowda MST and Rao CP: A study to evaluate relationship between dermatoglyphic
features and blood groups.
13%) in the study of digital dermatoglyphic
pattern in a sample of the Nigerian populations.
Palms & soles were normal with mild alteration in dermatoglyphic
For the patient Dermatoglyphic
pattern was taken by ink-pad technique, for that different prints are analyzed on white glazed paper by using magnifying lens.
Till date there is no data available about the dermatoglyphic
patterns of club foot patient in Odisha state.
Since many genes take part in the formation of dermatoglyphic
characters, it is possible that genes which predispose to familial disease may, by pleiotropic, also influence the ridge pattern so that particular constellation of dermatoglyphic
features may be characteristic of a particular disease.
patterns make their appearance as early as 12th to 13th week of gestation.
patterns, albeit varied, remain stable for a lifetime and yield a large number of patterns upon examination.
