During pregnancy, the mother undergoes changes to sustain and enable normal growth and development of the fetus. Common physiological changes include linea nigra, fibroepithelial polyps, striae, spider angioma, palmar erythema and pruritis gravidarum. However, there are some changes that are purely pathological, and these are termed the pregnancy‐specific dermatoses (PSDs). The PSDs occur during pregnancy or in the immediate postpartum period. They do not include the various benign conditions… Expand
Specific dermatoses of pregnancy other than pemphigoid gestationis.
TLDR
The epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features as well as management of AEP and PEP are reviewed in detail, while ICP, which cannot be considered a primarily skin disease but may be managed first by dermatologists, are reported. Expand
A review of literature of polymorphic eruption of pregnancy
TLDR
Polymorphic eruption of pregnancy (PEP), also known as pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy [PUPPP], is the most common of all the specific dermatoses of pregnancy and its exact pathogenesis is still unknown. Expand
Specific dermatosis of pregnancy: a hospital-based study
TLDR
Mechanisms leading to pregnancy-specific dermatoses may be a reflection of the hormonal and immunological changes associated with pregnancy that may potentially pose a serious risk to the fetus. Expand
Polymorphic eruption of pregnancy: Review of literature
Abstract Polymorphic Eruption of Pregnancy (PEP) is one of the most common dermatosis related to pregnancy. PEP usually consists of pruritic papules and plaques appearing in the third trimester ofExpand
Pruritus in Pregnancy and Its Management.
TLDR
Pemphigoid gestationis often presents with periumbilical involvement, whereas polymorphic eruption of pregnancy spares the umbilicus and presents in the striae distensae, which is associated with intense pruritus of the palms. Expand

TLDR
This literature review includes an up to date comparison on the presentation, diagnosis and treatment of dermatoses in pregnancy, in order to help with the discrimination. Expand
Dermatoses of pregnancy.
TLDR
The dermatoses of pregnancy represent a distinct heterogenous group of cutaneous disorders that can impact the health of the pregnant woman and potentially the fetus and important clinical features can aid in diagnosis. Expand

THE DERMATOSES OF PREGNANCY
TLDR
The skin changes in pregnancy can be either physiological (hormonal), changes in pre-existing skin diseases or development of new pregnancy specific dermatoses, which are seen only in pregnancy. Expand

TLDR
Eczema in pregnancy, prurigo of pregnancy, and pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy showed considerable overlap and were summarized as atopic eruption of pregnancy (AEP), while PEP, PG, and ICP presented in late pregnancy, AEP started significantly earlier. Expand
