AbstractA 50-year-old diabetic female patient had recurrent episodes of reticulate papular rash that resolved leaving a reticulate hyperpigmentation. Histopathology revealed spongiosis, mononuclear exocytosis, liquefactive degeneration of basal cells, pigmentary incontinence, and lichenoid and perivascular dermal infiltrate. Improvement was seen with dapsone. Prurigo pigmentosa is a rare disease reported mainly from Japan and this is the first report from India.
