    Papulovesicular light eruption. A defined subset of polymorphous light eruption.
    Arch Dermatol 1985 Oct;121(10):1286-8
    A distinctive photodermatitis is seen commonly in tourists visiting Hawaii. Analysis of 150 cases revealed that the eruption is acute in onset following exposure to sunlight, is confined to exposed areas, and mainly affects young to middle-aged white women.

    Successful treatment of severe polymorphous light eruption with azathioprine.
    Arch Dermatol 1989 Oct;125(10):1377-9
    Photobiology Unit, St Thomas' Hospital, London, England.
    Two patients with severe, disabling polymorphous light eruption, who were unable to tolerate photochemotherapy and who were unresponsive to alternative recognized therapies, are described. In both cases short-term treatment with azathioprine achieved a marked clinical improvement, confirmed by testing with an irradiation monochromator. This response suggests an immunological basis for polymorphous light eruption. Read More
