Abstract

Prurito pigmentosa is an inflammatory disease mainly reported by Japanese dermatologists. We report a case of Prurigo pigmentosa observed in a Sicilian young patient affected by intellectual disability. In the past, we had already observed and reported some cases of Prurigo pigmentosa in patients living in Sicily. The differential diagnosis, the treatment of the disease, the role of chronic intake of psychodrugs and the possible relation to G6PD deficiency of this patient are pointed out.
