BACKGROUND: The specific dermatoses of pregnancy represent a heterogenous group of ill-defined pruritic skin diseases, unique to pregnancy and post partum period.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of our study was epidemiological and clinical evaluation of various specific dermatoses of pregnancy.
METHODS: All patients visiting our antenatal clinic were screened for various pruritic skin conditions and those with specific pregnancy dermatoses were identified and evaluated.
RESULTS: Out of 1430 patients screened, nearly 5% (70 cases) patients had specific dermatoses of pregnancy. Intra hepatic cholestasis was the commonest specific pregnancy dermatoses.
CONCLUSION: Specific dermatoses of pregnancy can be diagnosed primarily on the basis of clinical features. All of these, except intra hepatic cholestasis, do not have any effect on normal course of pregnancy.
