221. Investigation of herpes simplex virus DNA in pityriasis rosea by polymerase chain reaction. (PubMed)

Investigation of herpes simplex virus DNA in pityriasis rosea by polymerase chain reaction. Pityriasis rosea (PR) is an acute, inflammatory disease of unknown cause. Clinical and experimental findings indicate an infectious etiology of PR. Our purpose is to examine the skin lesions and blood samples of PR patients by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the presence of HSV type 1 and 2 DNA.The lesional skin biopsies from 10 patients and blood samples from two randomized patients with clinically (...) and histologically confirmed pityriasis rosea were examined by PCR.No HSV 1 and HSV 2 DNA was detected in the lesional biopsy and blood samples.We could not identify a relationship between HSV 1, HSV 2 and PR.

222. Temporal case clustering in pityriasis rosea: a regression analysis on 1379 patients in Minnesota, kuwait, and diyarbakir, Turkey. (PubMed)

Temporal case clustering in pityriasis rosea: a regression analysis on 1379 patients in Minnesota, kuwait, and diyarbakir, Turkey. To detect temporal case clustering in patients with pityriasis rosea in different geographic locations.Regression analysis of dates on which 1379 patients were diagnosed as having pityriasis rosea in 3 different geographic locations. The control data consisted of dates of diagnosis of patients with psoriasis in the same settings.Dermatology clinics in Kuwait (...) , Minnesota, and Diyarbakir, Turkey.Patients Patients with pityriasis rosea and psoriasis seeking care in the clinics.Three significant positive clusters (P = .005, P =.001, and P =.01, respectively) and 1 significant negative cluster (P<.001) were detected in these series of patients. No cluster was detected in 2 corresponding series of patients with psoriasis in Kuwait and Turkey.Temporal case clustering exists in pityriasis rosea.

223. Case clustering in pityriasis rosea: a multicenter epidemiologic study in primary care settings in Hong Kong. (PubMed)

Case clustering in pityriasis rosea: a multicenter epidemiologic study in primary care settings in Hong Kong. To investigate the epidemiology of pityriasis rosea in primary care settings in Hong Kong and to analyze for temporal clustering.Retrospective epidemiologic study.Six primary care teaching practices affiliated with a university. Patients Forty-one patients with pityriasis rosea, 564 patients with atopic dermatitis (negative control condition), and 35 patients with scabies (positive (...) control condition).We retrieved all records of patients with pityriasis rosea, atopic dermatitis, or scabies diagnosed in 3 years. We analyzed temporal clustering by a method based on a regression model.The monthly incidence of pityriasis rosea is negatively but insignificantly correlated with mean air temperature (gamma s = -0.41, P =.19) and mean total rainfall (gamma s = -0.34, P =.27). Three statistically significant clusters with 7, 6, and 7 cases were identified (P =.03), occurring in the second

224. Is human herpesvirus 7 the causative agent of pityriasis rosea?--A critical review. (PubMed)

Is human herpesvirus 7 the causative agent of pityriasis rosea?--A critical review. Conflicting results on the association of pityriasis rosea and human herpesvirus 7 infection have been reported by different investigators.To review the level of evidence for such an association.Medline was searched with unlimited data entry and 13 reports were retrieved. The data were analyzed for a causative association according to the criteria of Fredericks and Relman, which take into consideration latent (...) infection and the reactivation of viruses characteristic of herpesviruses, and the roles of sequence-based detection methods.None of the criteria was substantiated by the findings of most investigators. Factors leading to the discrepancies of the results were discussed.There is currently insufficient evidence that human herpesvirus 7 infection is causally related to pityriasis rosea.

225. Additional evidence that pityriasis rosea is associated with reactivation of human herpesvirus-6 and -7. (PubMed)

Additional evidence that pityriasis rosea is associated with reactivation of human herpesvirus-6 and -7. To elucidate the role of human herpesvirus (HHV)-6 and -7 (HHV-7) in pityriasis rosea (PR), we measured their DNA load in plasma, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), and tissues using a calibrated quantitative real-time PCR assay. We also studied HHV-6- and HHV-7-specific antigens in skin by immunohistochemistry and anti-HHV-7 neutralizing activity using a syncytia-inhibition test

227. Erythromycin in pityriasis rosea: A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. (PubMed)

Erythromycin in pityriasis rosea: A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. The study stemmed from an incidental observation of improvement in 2 patients with pityriasis rosea while receiving erythromycin.The purpose of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of erythromycin in patients with pityriasis rosea.A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study was performed in an outpatient setting in a major hospital. Ninety patients over a period of 2 years were alternatively assigned (...) response was observed in 33 patients (73.33%) in the treatment group and none in the placebo group (P <.0001).Oral erythromycin was effective in treating patients with pityriasis rosea.

228. Atypical pityriasis rosea or psoriasis guttata? Early examination is the key to a correct diagnosis. (PubMed)

Atypical pityriasis rosea or psoriasis guttata? Early examination is the key to a correct diagnosis. Pityriasis rosea is a self-limited, mild, inflammatory skin disease characterized by scaly lesions, possibly due to an unidentified infectious agent. It may occur at any age, but is seen most frequently in young adults. This paper reports a patient who presented with a skin condition which was initially diagnosed as pityriasis rosea; however, due to the persistence and change in appearance (...) of the lesions, the diagnosis was later altered to psoriasis guttata. Changes in pityriasis rosea lesions over the course of the disease may make a correct diagnosis difficult, unless the patient is seen during the early stages of lesion formation. The final diagnosis in this case was of the rare variant known as pityriasis rosea irritata. This case highlights the importance of an excellent patient history in order to correctly diagnose the disease.

Detection of human herpesvirus 7 in pityriasis rosea by nested PCR. Clinical presentation, immunologic, light microscopic, and electron microscopic studies suggest a viral etiology for pityriasis rosea (PR).To evaluate whether human herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7) is an etiologic factor for PR.Twenty-one PR patients (12 female, nine male) aged between 12 and 52 years, whose diagnoses were confirmed clinically and histopathologically, were included in the study. The duration of the disease was questioned

230. Pityriasis rosea and discoid eczema: dose related reactions to treatment with gold. (PubMed)

Pityriasis rosea and discoid eczema: dose related reactions to treatment with gold. Sixteen cases of either a pityriasiform or discoid eczematous rash occurring in patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving treatment with gold (sodium aurothiomalate and auranofin) were studied. The results suggest that this is a dose related, not allergic, reaction to gold. The development of this rash is not an absolute indication to stop treatment with gold. Control can often be effected with potent topical
