LEZCANO, Liz et al. Prurigo nodularis. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2008, vol.106, n.5, pp.446-449. ISSN 0325-0075.

Prurigos are a heterogeneous group of disorders of questionable or unknown etiology characterized by subjective symptoms such as accentuated itching and an eruption of chronic or recurrent papulonodules as an objective sign. They are divided into acute and chronic; acute forms being the most frequent in childhood. We present the case of a child with nodularis prurigo, a variety of chronic prurigo, with symmetrically affected axilary regions.

Keywords : Prurigo; Pruritus; Nodularis prurigo; Chronic prurigo.
