Pityriasis rosea is a common self-limited papulo-squamous disorder which accounts for about 2% of the patients in a dermatology practice. Although the disease can occur in every age group, it favors children and young adults. Females may be slightly more often affected. Characteristic is the occurrence of pityriasis rosea in clusters, more often in the spring and fall.
