Displaying item Pityriasis rubra pilaris

Pityriasis rubra pilaris is the name given to a group of uncommon skin disorders that look rather similar, but which are probably different conditions. Their name means that they share some of the same features, e.g. scaling (pityriasis), redness (rubra) and involvement of the hair follicles (pilaris).
