Pityriasis rosea is an acute, benign, self-limiting cutaneous condition composed of papules and squamous lesions. As pityriasis annotates “fine scales”, a characteristic appearance of a “herald patch” and subsequent scaly, elliptical spots are configured upon the trunk and proximal extremities, delineating a “classic Christmas tree” appearance. Pityriasis rosea or “rose coloured scale” is additionally denominated as pityriasis circinata, roseola annulata and herpes tonsurans maculosus. Majority of instances of common Pityriasis rosea manifest a classic morphology and distribution. The benign, cutaneous eruption is devoid of permanent sequelae and generally does not mandate therapeutic intervention.
