Prurigo Pigmentosa Literature Review Part 2 – A Segmental Appearance

The next installment of my literature review of the keto-rash, prurigo pigmentosa.

Here is the previous post:

This next article is also hot off the presses, published July/August 2014 in Pediatric Dermatology.

Segmental Prurigo Pigmentosa

This was simply a case report about a 13 year old girl (pictured above) who developed the rash.  Unfortunately they do not discuss what they think caused it.

They thought this was worthy of report primarily because of the distribution of the rash which they call “segmental,” describing how it appears almost as a band on the left side of her chest.

She was treated with topical steroids (methylprednisolaone aceponate) and topical antifungals (clotrimazole) for 2 weeks with only mild improvement.  After 2 months, despite not continuing any treatment, the rash faded, and then reappeared.

Did they discuss how they treated it the second time?  No

Did they discuss what they think caused this?  No

Overall not a very helpful article, at least for our purposes.
