Pityriasis rosea and pityriasis versicolor

In our first episode of season 5, we’re thrilled to present ‘Vignettes of Dermatology’, a fresh series that delves into various aspects of dermatology through concise, focused episodes.  

To commence, we’re examining pityriasis rosea and pityriasis versicolor—two conditions with similar names, yet distinct underlying causes. 

During this episode, we’ll explore their distinguishing clinical presentations, dissect their differential diagnoses, and discuss the range of management strategies available for effectively addressing these dermatological conditions.
