Abstract

CARBIA, Sergio Gabriel et al. Purpuric pityriasis rosea: case report and literature review. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.2, pp. 221-225. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962003000200010.

Purpuric pityriasis rosea is an unusual disease with ten published cases in the American and European literature. The main feature is an hemorrhagic or purpuric eruption with or without scaling. A case is reported of a 25-year-old man with skin lesions affecting the scapular region. The review emphasizes the differential diagnosis of purpuric cutaneous diseases. According to LILACS and MEDLINE, no similar case has been reported in the Latin-American literature.

Keywords : Exanthema; pityriasis rosea.
