Abstract

Prurigo pigmentosa is a rare inflammatory dermatosis that primarily affects Japanese patients. Various triggers have been identified, including the ketogenic diet. Given the current popularity of the ketogenic diet, the incidence of prurigo pigmentosa may be on the rise. Herein, to the best of our knowledge, we present the first case of prurigo pigmentosa reported in a Hispanic patient in the United States.
