With an estimated incidence rate of one in 400,000, the diagnosis of PRP is subject to delays. Biopsies are inconclusive. Misdiagnoses of psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and other skin maladies too often delay the start of effective treatment plans. The diagnosis of PRP typically requires a combination of clinical observations and a biopsy. The most timely diagnoses seem to occur when the dermatologist recognizes the symptoms and directed the dermatopathologist to "consider" PRP. What is your PRP diagnosis story? Was your dermatologist PRP savvy?
