Abstract

The etiology of prurigo pigmentosa still remains unknown. We present a 16-year-old female patient with ketonemia caused by diabetes mellitus. The eruption subsided when blood glucose and total ketone levels were controlled by subcutaneous insulin injection. We propose that ketonemia caused by diabetes mellitus may play a role in the pathogenesis of prurigo pigmentosa.
