Aim: The aim of the present study was to analyze the palmar dermatoglyphic patterns of chronic periodontitis patients and to find any correlation between them. Materials and Methods: A total of 80 patients were included in the study. Group I: Healthy group, 40 patients with no clinical and radiographical periodontal involvement. Group II: Chronic periodontitis patients with 30% sites exhibiting 5 mm clinical attachment level (CAL). Patients with systemic diseases were excluded from the study. Results: There was a significantly higher percentage of whorls in Group II compared to Group I. Loop patterns are significantly more in Group I than Group II. There was no significant difference between both the groups for arch patterns. Conclusion: There can be a correlation between the dermatoglyphic pattern and the chronic periodontitis as whorl finger pattern predominates in chronic periodontitis patients.
