Abstract

ROLE OF PATHOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS IN SKIN DISORDERS (TWACHA VIKAR)

Dr. Snehal N. Dange*, Dr. Vijay Potdar and Dr. S.R. Saley

ABSTRACT

Skin has been described as the mirror of the body. It reflects the physical, mental and psychological state of individual. Skin disorder is a condition or disease affecting skin. A skin lesion is a part of skin that has an abnormal growth or appearance compared to the skin around it. The prevalence of skin disease in India is 10-12% of total population with eczema and psoriasis being the major contributors. Due to pollution, UV light and global warming, pigment darkening, skin cancers and infectious diseases are increasing at a faster pace. Not all the skin lesions are preventable e.g moles, frickles etc are benign growths that are common and unavoidable. Some skin disorders have serious impact on life. They can cause physical damage, embarrassment and social and occupational restrictions. Pathological investigations are indicated when cause of skin disease is not obvious from history and physical examination alone. Different skin disorders show local or systemic blood changes, changes in LFT, KFT, hormonal changes etc. Therefore it may be helpful to reach the diagnosis. Not every skin disorder needs investigations. Some skin disorder are primarily developed and some are developed as a complication of other diseases like diabetes, tuberculosis etc. In Ayurvedic texts, skin diseases are included under kushtha vyadhi and some are in kshudra roga. So, this paper will present some investigations which is required to be done in skin disorders (twacha vikar).

Keywords: Skin has been described kshudra roga. (twacha vikar).
