Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The terminology of the specific dermatoses of pregnancy has become increasingly confusing, with several names in use for identical clinical disorders. On the basis of our own study of sixty-four patients and a review of the literature, we propose a simplified classification: (1) herpes gestationis (pemphigoid gestationis); (2) polymorphic eruption of pregnancy; (3) prurigo of pregnancy; and (4) pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy.
