Abstract

Pityriasis rotunda (PR) has been known to affect, almost exclusively, Japanese and South African Bantu, often in association with various systemic diseases. However, the occurrence of PR in Caucasian patients is extremely rare, and has been previously described in only three reports. We hereby report a case of an apparently healthy Caucasian woman from Israel having clinical and histological features characteristic of PR.
