Two Cases with Vesicular Pityriasis Rosea

  title={Two Cases with Vesicular Pityriasis Rosea},
  author={{\"O}mer Çalka and G{\"u}lçin G{\"u}ler},
Observation: Pityriasis rosea (PR) is a self-limited, mild, inflammatory skin disease characterized by scaly lesions, possibly due to an unidentified infectious agent. It may occur at any age, but is seen most frequently in young adults. Many atypical forms of the disease have been reported in the literature. Typical PR is much easier to diagnose than the rare atypical forms. Herein we presented two male patients diagnosed as vesicular PR.
