• Prurigo pigmentosa is an uncommon skin disease first reported from Japan where it has gained recognition as a distinct cutaneous disease characterized by rapid response to dapsone therapy. Recently, a few reports of prurigo pigmentosa have appeared in the western literature. We describe prurigo pigmentosa occurring in an American-born white man and review the literature pertaining to this unique entity.
