MONTI, FC; HALAC, S; KURPIS, M  and  RUIZ LASCANO, A. Pityriasis rubra pilaris: a case report. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.97, n.1, pp.54-61. ISSN 1851-300X.

Pityriasis rubra pilaris is a rare disorder of keratinization, characterized by hyperkeratotic papules and palmoplantar keratoderma. It occurs equally in both sexes and has a bimodal appearance, in the first decade of life and then in the fifth and sixth decade. The classification of this disease represents a challenge due to the variability of the clinical findings. We present the case of a young woman who presented the disease in early age, had a chronic evolution and responded favorably to topical treatment.

Keywords : Pytiriasis rubra pilaris; Juvenile.
