Abstract

The article gives a brief overview of the types of papillary ridge patterns of the skin, their location on the digits of fingers and toes. In this study, the authors of the article aimed to determine whether the papillary ridge patterns of a person’s fingers and toes on the hands and feet of the same side are identical in terms of general characteristics. The methods used were the printing ink imprints on dactyloscopic maps and Microsil® impressions, and the comparison of the obtained impressions.
