In this study, a new technique developed by us, called the "pad glove method" was used to measure sweat intensity in the palms of 15 patients with palmoplantar hyperhidrosis, and of 15 control subjects. Quantitative results in the hyperhidrosis group 2.1861±0.0836 grams/hour for the right hand and 2.2478±0.0961 grams/hour for the left hand, while in the control group were 0.3278±0.0419 grams/hour and 0.371±0.0501 grams/hours, respectively. Data were analyzed by Student's t test. The sweat intensities in the hyperhidrosis group were found to be significantly higher than in the control group in both hands (p
