Palm prints of 55 male and 33 female schizophrenic patients from Assam Medical College, Dibrugarh were examined for a possible association between palmar dermatoglyphic characteristics and the disease. There was a marked difference between patients and normal controls with regard to palmar C line termination, axial triadic, number of ridges at the a-b inter digital area and the frequency of various palmar flexion creases.
