purpura annularis telangiectodes
a rare type of chronic pigmented purpura that usually begins on the lower limbs and becomes more generalized; the original punctate erythematous lesions coalesce to form annular or serpiginous patterns. Involution is slow and may be followed by atrophy and loss of hair in the area. Called also Majocchi p. or disease.
