    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
    Immunohistology of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta and pityriasis lichenoides chronica. Evidence for their interrelationship with lymphomatoid papulosis.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1987 Mar;16(3 Pt 1):559-70
    Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta and pityriasis lichenoides chronica are idiopathic, papular eruptions that exhibit certain clinicopathologic similarities to each other and to lymphomatoid papulosis. In order to determine if these disorders are also similar immunologically, we studied the immunopathology of five biopsy specimens from three cases of pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta and three biopsy specimens from three cases of pityriasis lichenoides chronica. We then compared them to our prior immunohistologic study of nine cases of lymphomatoid papulosis. Read More

    Background: Pityriasis lichenoides is a rare cutaneous disorder of unknown origin that mainly affects children and young people. The disease consists of two variants: pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta, characterized by papular lesions evolving into necrosis and pityriasis lichenoides chronica characterized by scaly papules that may last from several months to several years. Various types of therapy have been proposed for pityriasis lichenoides, to our knockledge, photochemotherapy has never been used. Read More
