Abstract:

The dermal ridges are genetically determined and influenced by environmental forces that are operating before birth. Several studies have shown association between dermatoglyphics and different types of cancer. To study and analyse the finger & palm print patterns of patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) & individuals (as control group) with tobacco & related habits but without any tobacco induced lesions. Study sample comprised of two groups having 30 patients each, one group consisted of patients with OSCC and the other of control patients. Finger and palm prints were collected using Ink method from 30 patients with OSCC, 30 healthy patients (controls) and were evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively. “Variance Test” and “Chi-square Test” Arches and loops were found more commonly in OSCC patients while whorls were observed more commonly in control group. It is very true that the patients who have habits are susceptible to oral cancer but for those patients who develop this dreadful disease without any cause or habit, an attempt can be made to study the palmar dermatoglyphics and intercept the impending disease and this can prove worthy to save lives.
