Dermatoglyphics, the study of palm prints are the patterns of the ridged skin of the digits, palms and soles, which are constant and individualistic. Dermatoglyphic study of finger tip and palmer patterns had been done extensively in various genetic and metabolic disorders. The present study is carried out to see the co-relation between the dermatoglyphic patterns and ABO blood groups. The study included 785 medical students of the age between 18 to 22 yrs. The fingerprints and palm prints were taken by using the kores duplicating ink. Parameters studied were arches, loops, whorls and quantitative indices. In the present study majority of students shows the higher incidence of blood group O and lower incidence of blood group AB .Frequency of ulnar loops and combine whorls in males and females in different blood groups shows significant difference (P<0.05 ).
