Abstract: The different configurations or pattern frequencies of epidermal ridges, palms and soles can be studied by Dermatoglyphics. The human dermatoglyphics traits represent the variations within and between populations. The aim of present study is to analyse the variation in the population of Kondha tribe of Orissa. The 83 sample of Kondha tribe were collected and compared with 83 controls. The prints of both hands were taken by rolling finger technique. In Tribal the percentage of loops were high in IIIrd and Vth digit with 59.03 % and 65.06 % respectively as compared with control. The whorl of only IVth digit of tribal was high with 70.48 % where as the frequency of other digits was comparatively less. The arches of I, II, III and Vth digit of patients was low where as the IVth and Vth digit shows no significant change. The mean and S. D. of loop of right hand was higher with 15.96 and 19.83 respectively. In left hand the whorl shows highest mean with 14.14 where as the loop shows highest S. D. with 119.63. The mean of arch of both hands was same. The Dermatoglyphics represent as an appropriate tool for study the variations in fingerprints of population of Kondha tribe.
