Skin Match the dermatologic images to their diagnoses!

The conditions seen in these 3 photographs are easily confused. Can you match each picture with the correct diagnosis?

1. Pityriasis rosea.
2. Pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta (PLEVA).
3. Pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC).

Default Good one!

Challenging indeed!

Because of typical location of herald patch on the abdomen, and many oval patches generally spread widely across the chest first-rib-line in a characteristic "christmas-tree" distribution, I'm pretty sure the diagram 2 is pityriasis rosea.

The remaining two are Pityriasis lichenoides! The agressive looking one (3rd diagram) is PLEVA. The remaining one is chronic one-PLC. They're much rarer than pityriasis rosea.
