In view of the multiple etiologies involved in this common and interesting group of diseases, and also a wide felt paucity of clinical and epidemiological studies on this subject, we have undertaken this study with an objective of finding out the incidence of various etiological factors causing acquired PPKD.
We also report a rare case of acquired PPKD, secondary to lichenoid drug eruption, which was previously unreported in the literature to the best of our knowledge.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 100 consecutive patients of acquired PPKD, attending the outpatient department of dermatology, venereology and leprosy in a rural based tertiary hospital in South India, from the age of 10 years and above, were included.
One case of lichenoid eruption presenting as PPKD was seen in a patient having violaceous to hyper pigmented macules over the face and both upper and lower limbs.
Similarly, Chopra et al (5) reported male preponderance in their study of acquired PPKD, where 55.00% of the cases were males.
