Abstract

Purpura pigmentosa linearis unilateralis chronica is a rare subtype of pigmented purpuric dermatoses, characterized by linear or segmental distribution of purpuric macules, predominantly on the lower extremities. It is usually not associated with underlying systemic disease and follows a benign course with spontaneous regression. No specific treatment modalities are needed. Herein, an anecdotal case of purpura pigmentosa linearis unilateralis chronica is presented in the highlights of a scientific literature update.
