A 30-year-old woman developed pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP). The eruption, characterized by generalized edematous, erythematous plaques and nonexcoriated papules, began in the third trimester of pregnancy and was responsive to oral corticosteroids. While the etiology of PUPPP is unknown and the clinical features (urticarial plaques) sometimes overlap with those of other dermatoses of pregnancy, we regard PUPPP as a distinct entity. Utilization of a broad base of clinicopathologic and laboratory criteria is important in the workup of a patient with an eruption of pregnancy.
