    Pityriasis Rosea Recurrence is Much Higher than Previously Known: A Prospective Study
    Mavişe Yüksel
    Pityriasis rosea (PR) recurrence is generally considered to be rare. There are few studies conducted in the literature to determine the frequency of recurrence. 212 patients (136 female, 76 male) were prospectively evaluated by the same physician for 4 years and recurrence frequency was examined. This study is considered worthy of presentation due to the PR recurrence rate being higher than reported in the literature.
