Sir, Pityriasis rosea (PR) is an acute, self-limited disease, characterized by erythematous and squamous lesions and demonstrates minimal constitutional symptoms... Dermatological examination revealed a well-demarcated squamous plaques with peripheral erythema over the proximal part of the left leg, some with a collarette of scale at the margin [Figure 1]... The total blood count, blood chemistry and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were within normal limits... KOH mount did not reveal any fungal elements... The patient was diagnosed as PR on clinical and histopathological evaluation... Since the patient had mild itching, topical methylprednisolone and oral antihistaminic were prescribed... Patient did not report any other problems during the follow-up and the lesions completely healed within the next 6 weeks... Acute PR is a self-limited skin disease characterized by oval or round shaped, erythematous squamous plaques... Some of these variants include plaque, urticarial, vesicular, bullous, lichenoid type, non-palpable purpura, erythema multiforme-like lesions, gigantic plaque and exfoliative dermatitis... To the best of our knowledge, only five cases with unilateral PR were reported previously... This report presents a rare, unilateral PR case with one-sided involvement.

Histopathological evaluation of the biopsy specimen demonstrated hyperkeratosis, focal parakeratosis, irregular acanthosis, exocytosis, spongiosis, extravasated erythrocytes and perivascular mononuclear cell infiltration in dermis [Figure 2]. The total blood count, blood chemistry and erythrocyte sedimentation rate were within normal limits. KOH mount did not reveal any fungal elements. The patient was diagnosed as PR on clinical and histopathological evaluation. Since the patient had mild itching, topical methylprednisolone and oral antihistaminic were prescribed.
