Specific dermatoses of pregnancy other than pemphigoid gestationis.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2019 Jun 29;154(3):286-298. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Section of Dermatology, Department of Surgery and Translational Medicine, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Specific dermatoses of pregnancy are skin disorders that occur specifically during or immediately after pregnancy and cannot be found in non-pregnant patients. According to the current consensus, they include atopic eruption of pregnancy (AEP), polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP), pemphigoid gestationis (PG), and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP). The diagnosis of specific dermatoses of pregnancy can be challenging due to their variation in clinical presentation; moreover, the tests currently available do not always provide the clue for the diagnosis.
