Figure 3: Histopathology confirming the diagnosis of pityriasis lichenoides chronica (PLC) showing small mounds of parakeratosis and epidermal infiltration by lymphocytes and red blood cells (RBCs). The dermoepidermal junction shows occasional necrotic keratinocytes. Focal interface vacuolar change and sparse superficial perivascular lymphocytic infiltrate with extravasation of RBCs can be seen in the papillary dermis. Focal melanophages in the mid-to-upper dermis are also seen [hematoxylin and eosin, ×400]
