Pityriasis rosea during pregnancy – what obstetricians should know about it?

A.A. Simionescu


Rezumat: Pityriasis rosea is a skin eruption commonly associated with pregnancy. The present work aims at presenting what obstetricians should know about pityriasis rosea (PR) diagnosis and treatment during pregnancy. PR displays as an acute exanthem disease, nonpruritic, usually located on the thorax and shoulders, with the appearance of erythematous plaques, in a “Christmas-tree pattern” distribution. Due to its etiology (human herpes viruses 6 and 7), the risk of spontaneous abortion can be analyzed. It resolves spontaneously within two months in 80% of cases. There is no evidence for vertical transmission. Pregnancy-associated PR has a favorable outcome and antiviral treatment is not helpful.
Cuvinte cheie: pityriasis rosea, pregnancy, exanthema, skin lesions.
