Introduction: Skin disorders are common all over the globe but its pattern varies geographically and in
different states of the same country. The precise diagnosis of skin lesions is importance as treatment differs
significantly. Histopathology remains a gold standard diagnostic tool, as most of these disorders present
with very similar clinical pictures. Moradabad is a district in Northern India prevalent for all granulomatous
inflammatory lesions of any organ.
Aims and Objective: To study the histopathological diagnosis of skin lesion, to determine the distribution
according to age and sex, to find out the most common skin lesion in this geographical area and further
subclassification of the commonest disorder.
Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study in Department of Pathology at Teerthanker
Mahaveer Medical college and research centre Moradabad for a period of 2 years. Clinical findings were
retrieved, histopathological examination of skin punch biopsies were done with H and E as well as special
stains as required. Data obtained, tabulated and analysed.
Result: A total number of 100 patients were taken in this study, 60(60%) were male and 40(40%) were
females. Early age group predominance was found with 35(35%) cases in 21 to 30 years of age group.
Leprosy 60(60%) was found to be the common est lesion. Hansen’s disease was mostly contributed by
tuberculoid indeterminate and lepromatous leprosy.
Conclusion: Males were predominated over females in skin lesions. Younger age group patients were
leading among all. Hansen’s disease was the commonest skin lesion.
