Suresh BS, Raghavendra AY Variations in palmar dermatoglyphics
among congenital deaf cases: a comparative study.
Objective of this study is to find out whether there are any statistical significant changes in the palmar dermatoglyphics
patterns of the [beta]-thalassemia major patients in comparison with normal subjects.
Studies on families have shown that dermatoglyphics
have a genetic basis but the number, type and interrelationship of genes concerned are not explicable yet.
variations in five ethno-geographical cohorts of Indian populations: a pilot study.
The influences of genetic and environmental factors on early development are often reflected by the altered dermatoglyphics
Forest reported that dermatoglyphics
form a part of structural constitution.
Jaja and Igbigbi (8) in their work on the digital and palmar dermatoglyphics
of the Ijaw of Southern Nigeria reported the ulnar loops as being the most prevalent digital ridge pattern type, followed by whorls, arches and the least being the radial loops.
Considering all the above factors and also the well-known relation of dermatoglyphics
with the malady, the present study is undertaken to study these morphological characteristics, on group of patients suffering from Type II Diabetes mellitus, all coming from Udaipur Region.
this is evident from the clear resemblance of dermatoglyphics
among related person.
(Ancient Greek, derma=skin, glyphe=furrow) is the term applied to the scientific study of prints of skin viz.
Studies have shown a significant association between dermatoglyphics
and some diseases, especially genetic ones.
At the time, morphological perspectives prevailed over variability in certain features such as dental characters and dermatoglyphics
The skin markings over the hypopigmented macules were decreased and dermatoglyphics
over tips of all fingers were not very prominent.
Fingers 2-5 were represented by bead-like remnants and there was distortion of palmer dermatoglyphics
In Greek, "derma" equals skin and "glyphos" equals engrave, thus dermatoglyphics
is the scientific study of fringerprints.
