HYPOPIGMENTED PITYRIASIS VERSICOLOR IN INFANTS: A COMMON DISEASE IN AN UNCOMMON AGE GROUP
Pityriasis versicolor (PV) is a superficial fungal infection of the skin, caused by Malassezia yeast, primarily seen in post pubertal age group. We are reporting a series of 3 infants who presented to the OPD with round to oval hypopigmented flat lesions during monsoon season, with no family history of any such lesions in any of the members. Diagnosis was confirmed by Wood’s lamp examination and KOH mount. All 3 infants responded to topical ketoconazole lotion in 1 month.
