Porokeratosis is usually asymptomatic, but a pruritic variant, called “eruptive pruritic papular porokeratosis” or “inflammatory disseminated superficial porokeratosis”, has been described. We describe another case of pruritic porokeratosis in a 63-­year-­old Caucasian woman with a poor response to antihistamines and local treatments. EPPP is uncommon in non-­Asiatic people, but probably it is underestimated. We consider it a transient inflammatory stage rather than a distinct entity of porokeratosis.
