Pigmented purpuric dermatoses are dermoscopically identified by the combination of purpuric dots or globules and orange-brown areas of pigmentation.[1][2] A similar dermoscopic pattern has been described in patients with mycosis fungoidesThis glossary term has not yet been described., supporting previous evidence reporting clinical and histopathologic overlap between the two entities.[3] Since the pigmented purpuric dermatoses and mycosis fungoides notably differ in physical course and managementThis glossary term has not yet been described., lesions showing a dermsocopic pattern of pigmented purpuric dermatoses should be evaluated carefully.
