Abstract: We report the case of a 16-year-old Indian girl who presented with multiple small papular lesions and larger erythema multiforme-like plaques in a Christmas tree pattern over her body for 3 weeks. Histopathologic examination was performed, and she was diagnosed with pityriasis rosea presenting with two atypical morphological variants—generalized papular and erythema multiforme-like. A brief review of literature of these two rare types is also presented.
