Hyperpigmented pityriasis versicolor

Hyperpigmented pityriasis versicolor

Pityriasis versicolor may assume 3 clinical forms: Erythematous, hyperpigmented and hypopigmented rash. Here is a 34-year-old male presented with asymptomatic hyperpigmented brownish slightly scaly patches at the neck region of many months duration. One or more clinical forms may be found in one patient and to accentuate the fine scaly nature of the rash you may need to gently scrape or stretch these patches.
