Much progress has been made in establishing Dermatoglyphics as a useful   diagnostic tool in medicine, providing important insights into the inheritance and embryological development of medical disorders. The present study attempts to compare the Dermatoglyphics parameters specially palmar angles-angles atd, angle adt and angle dat, in cases of NIDDM with that of controls. Results showed a significant difference in mean values of angle adt and angle atd when put to statistical tests and ‘p’ value calculated.
