The term pigmented purpuric dermatoses comprehends the following entities: Schamberg’s disease, Majocchi purpura, eczematoid purpura of Doucas and Kapetanakis, lichen aureus and pigmented purpuric lichenoid dermatitis of Gougerot-Blum. Pigmented purpuric dermatoses are dermoscopically identified by the combination of purpuric dots or globules and orange-brown areas of pigmentation. A similar dermoscopic pattern has been described in patients with mycosis fungoides, supporting previous evidence reporting clinical and histopathologic overlap between the two entities. Since the pigmented purpuric dermatoses and mycosis fungoides notably differ in physical course and management, lesions showing a dermsocopic pattern of pigmented purpuric dermatoses should be evaluated carefully.
