Pityriasis rubra pilaris: a review of diagnosis and treatment.
Pityriasis rubra pilaris refers to a group of chronic disorders characterised by reddish orange plaques with pityriasiform scaling showing follicular keratoses, palmoplantar keratoderma, and sometimes erythroderma.
[8,3,4,9,10] Eight of our patients were diagnosed as pityriasis rubra pilaris which is a common cause of erythroderma.
Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a rare papulosquamous disorder of unknown etiology with an estimated incidence of 1 in 5000 to 1 in 50000 patients.1 It was first described by Devergie in 1857.2 It is characterized by reddish orange scaly plaques with pityriasiform scaling showing follicular keratoses, palmoplantar keratoderma, and sometimes erythroderma.1 The familial subtype, mainly type V PRP is rare and inherited as an autosomal dominant disorder with variable penetrance.1 Other forms of inheritance as autosomal recessive and X-linked forms have also been described.
The other differentials that need to be considered are psoriasis and pityriasis rubra pilaris which can aptly be ruled out on the basis of histopathology.2,3
Acquired PPK can occur due to various inflammatory and reactive dermatoses like chronic hand dermatitis, psoriasis, keratoderma blennorrhagica (Reiter syndrome), pityriasis rubra pilaris, lichen planus.
