Atopy stigmataoccurin individual with hypersensitivity state that is related with the formation of excessive serum IgE thatdetermined by genetic factor. It can help to establish the diagnosis of genetic diseases, such as stigmata of atopy. The aim of this study was to determine the specific pattern of dermatoglyphics in patient with stigmata of atopy and to determineits relationship with serum IgE level. This study was an analytical study with a cross-sectional design. The dermatoglyphic patterns of patients with atopic stigmata were collected.Weexaminedthe pattern of loop, whorl or arc on right and left hand. IgE levels were measured with Elisa method. Data were analyzed statistically. Loop is the most frequent dermatoglyphic patternon right and left hand (58.52% ; 63.70%) followed by whorl (31.85% ; 28.89%)and arc (9.63%;7.41%). There was no relationship between the pattern of dermatoglyphics andserum IgElevel (p>0.05). Pattern of loop, whorl and arc is not different between atopic and non atopic group. This pattern classificationis the most frequently usedindermatoglyphic. Others pattern such as total pattern count, cores, radiant, atd angle, a-b ridgecanbe used to determine the specific pattern in specific diseases. Apart from genetic factor, dermatoglyphic pattern are also influenced by ethnic and geographical factor. There was no specific dermatoglyphicpattern in an atopic patients and this pattern was also not associated with serum IgE level
