Pityriasis rosea is a skin disease characterized by sharply defined pruritic red patches covered by fine scales mostly affecting young adults. Typical lesions usually affect the trunk in a Christmas-tree pattern and it usually resolves spontaneously after 6 weeks. This patient reported with classic presentation of pityriasis rosea except for the unusual associated palmar lesions. A VDRL test was suggested but the patient refused.
