In this review, we discuss pigmented purpuric dermatoses (PPD), which are a group of benign, chronic diseases characterised by purpuric eruption. PPD comprise mb. Schamberg, mb. Majocchi, Gougerot-Blum, lichen aureus, and Doucas and Kapetanakis eczematoid purpura. PPD can be seen in both genders and may affect all age groups. Purpura is often localised to the lower extremities, and it may be asymptomatic or pruritic. PPD is usually diagnosed upon recognition of classical clinical features, but the diagnosis can also be confirmed by a skin biopsy.
