A 41-year-old man presented with a ten-year history of recurrent erythema and swelling of skin that occurred following sun exposure even as little as ten minutes. The lesion affected only on the sun exposed area. A phototesting was carried out and revealed that urticaria was induced following ultraviolet A (UVA) and visible light exposure. Read More

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2016 Sep;32(5-6):284-290

Photobiological Dermatology Laboratory, Medical Research Center, Department of Dermatology and Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Málaga, Málaga, Spain.

Background: Photodermatoses are typically investigated by analyzing the individual or combined effects of ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB), and visible light using light sources that simulate portions of the solar spectrum. Infrared radiation (IRR), however, accounts for 53% of incident solar radiation, but its effects are not taken into account in standard phototest protocols.

Aims: The aim was to analyze the effects of IRR, alone and combined with UVA and visible light on solar urticaria lesions, with a distinction between infrared A (IRA) and infrared B (IRB). Read More
