BACKGROUND: The term skin disease refers to diseases affecting only the surface layers of the skin. Iridology is a noninvasive diagnosis in which different signs are analyzed from different parts and sectors of the iris as well as varying discolorations within the iris. This study was designed to observe the presence of scurf rim in the iris of patients with chronic skin diseases. METHODS: 121 subjects in the age group of 11 to 45 years from Arignar Anna Govt. Hospital of Indian Medicine, Yoga and Naturopathy Department, Arumbakkam, were recruited for the study after giving their written informed consent. Evaluation of the appearance of scurf rim in the outer edge of the iris was carried out on both eyes. ASSESSMENTS: High-definition Images of the Iris of both the eyes were made using 2017 CE FCC NEW 12.0 MP USB IRISCOPE IRIS ANALYSER Iridology camera. The images are assessed with Pro Iris Software – GH11003 to detect scurf rim in Iris. RESULTS: Identification of scurf rim using Iridoscope has 94.21% of sensitivity to detect the skin diseases. CONCLUSION: Prominent scurf rim is seen in most of the patients with skin disorders. Hereby we conclude that iridology can be taken into consideration for diagnosing skin diseases. It can also help in detecting skin diseases and can be used as a non-invasive diagnostic tool.
