Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a chronic skin disease characterized by follicular papules, orange plaques that leave islands of non-affected skin, and palmoplantar hyperkeratosis, being its age and clinical presentation very variable. It is a rare disease that can be misdiagnosed with other dermatoses of similar appearance. Treatment is not well established and can be unsuccessful. We present the case of a 7-year-old girl with a typical PRP and expose a brief review of this pathology.
