Dermatoglyphic study to correlate a particular dermatoglyphic pattern with occurrence of cervical carcinoma in the Northern Bengal population was done for a period of one year (July2015 to June 2016). Finger tip patterns of 72 cases of cervical carcinoma were tested against 72 controls. The results showed a statistically significant decrease in the frequency of ulnar loop pattern in cervical cancer patients(52.78%) compared to control group(60.83%) in both the hands. There is decrease in the percentage of Radial loops in cervical cancer patients (3.19%) compared to control group (7.36%) in both hands and the difference is statistically significant. The percentage of whorls decreased in control group (27.50%) compared to cervical cancer patients (38.89%) and the difference is statistically significant in both hands.
