Finger print's patterns and patterns intensity were examined in a group of diagnosed cases of leukemia patients (100 males and females) who attended Baghdad Teaching Hospital; and the National Center for Hematology / Al-Mustansiryiah University. This group was compared with apparently healthy control group of 100 males and females -These finger patterns were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. The results showed increment in the number of arches, ulnar loops and decline in whorls, radial loops in both hands in males leukemia patients in comparison with healthy male and this increment reach a significant level (P< 0.0001; Chi-square test= 48.0819). In contrast in female leukemia patients there was a significant increment (P< 0.0001; Chi-square test= 33.928) in the number of arches, whorls and a decline in ulnar loops, radial loops in both hands, in comparison with healthy females. In quantitative analysis, TRC (Total Ridge counts) and ARC (Absolute Ridge Counts) have been collected and the TRC values were 107.849 in male patients and 111.968 for control males. The TRC values were 107.4 female patients and 100.616 for control females. In addition, the ARC values were 143.221 in male patients and 153.548 for control males while the were 153.044 in female patients and 129.067 for females in the control group.
Key words: Dermatoglyphics, finger ridge count, Finger print's patterns.
