    Etanercept-induced pityriasis lichenoides chronica in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.

    Rheumatology Unit, Fundación Valle del Lili, Carrera 98 N. 18-49, Cali, Colombia.
    We present a 74-year-old female patient who developed a pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) during etanercept therapy. This association is not described in the literature and might be considered in the spectrum of cutaneous adverse reactions of etanercept.

    The transformation of pityriasis lichenoides chronica into parakeratosis variegata in an 11-year-old girl.
    Br J Dermatol 1997 Dec;137(6):983-7
    Department of Dermatology, University of Frankfurt Medical School, Germany.
    Parakeratosis variegata is a rare disorder with unknown aetiology. In a few cases it arises from benign skin diseases such as pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (Mucha Habermann disease) or pityriasis lichenoides chronica. However, transformation into malignant diseases such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma has been observed. Read More
    Cytotoxic mycosis fungoides evolving from pityriasis lichenoides chronica in a seventeen-year-old girl. Report of a case.
    Dermatology 2002 ;205(2):176-9
    Department of Dermatology, Hospital of Busto Arsizio, Italy.
    Pityriasis lichenoides chronica and its acute form, pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta, are skin diseases of unknown origin, that probably represent a hypersensitivity reaction to an infective agent. Pityriasis lichenoides is often a benign disorder but, because of the presence of a clonal T cell population detected both in the chronic and acute forms, some authors have suggested that it may belong to the group of primary cutaneous T cell lymphomas. Although various studies have clearly documented no significant association between pityriasis lichenoides and malignant lymphomas, cases of long-standing pityriasis lichenoides evolving into mycosis fungoides have been described.
