Case of Recurrent Type B Pigmentary Demarcation Lines in a Pregnant Woman

Pelin Ustuner and Recep Bedir

Pigmentary demarcation lines are abrupt demarcation lines between the light and dark pigmentation areas that usually occur on the upper and lower limbs. They are considered to be associated with the distribution of cutaneous peripheral nerves and pigmentary differences due to neurogenic inflammation. Herein we report a rare case of type B pigmentary demarcation lines in a white pregnant female presenting with persistent lesions that occurred during the first trimester and continued even 1-year postpartum. She also had similar pigmentary abnormalities in her previous pregnancy. The recurrence, persistence and the unique distribution pattern of pigmentary demarcation lines including not only the posterior but also the anterior portion of her lower extremity were the remarkable aspects of this case.
