Abstract

Finger tip and palmar dermatoglyphics were studied in 31 patients (22 females and 9 males) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 38 matched controls (20 females and 18 males) from North India. While not many differences were observed in palmar patterns, a low ending of line A was found on both hands of two patients. Finger tip patterns were significantly different in patients compared to controls. No association with any dermatoglyphic feature and HLA antigens was observed.
