ABSTRACT

Pigmented purpuric dermatoses (PPD) are a group of histopathologically similar conditions that are primarily differentiated based on morphology. The basic pathological finding is a lymphocytic perivascular infiltrate with hemorrhage limited to the papillary dermis without fibrinoid necrosis of the vessels. The etiology is unknown; they run a chronic course and are fairly resistant to treatment. We present this review for the physicians to kindle interest in this not-so-uncommon entity.

Keywords: Pigmented purpuric dermatoses, Purpura, Schamberg‖s disease.
