The term pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP) was first proposed by Lawley et al. in 1979 to describe benign dermatoses of pregnancy characterised by erythema, urticarial plaques and papules. It is a skin disorder whose incidence is estimated to occur in one in 200 pregnancies (0.5%) (Aronson et al. 1998). In the present study, an unusual case of PUPPP is reported. The interesting presentation of this case may render new insights regarding the aetiological factors of this disease.

Abstract

The term pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP) was first proposed by Lawley et al. in 1979 to describe benign dermatoses of pregnancy characterised by erythema, urticarial plaques and papules. It is a skin disorder whose incidence is estimated to occur in one in 200 pregnancies (0.5%) (Aronson et al. 1998). In the present study, an unusual case of PUPPP is reported. The interesting presentation of this case may render new insights regarding the aetiological factors of this disease.
