Abstract

The ratios between dermatoglyphic patterns of different types were studied in males and females with and without hereditary diseases of the skin. It was found that ridge patterns of fingers are determined by special polygenes. Patients with monogenic dermatoses (X-linked ichthyosis and autosomal recessive ichthyosiform erythroderma) exhibited a suppressed formation of the loop pattern compared to control subjects.
