Phytophotodermatitis is caused by deposition of photosensitising compounds on the skin followed by ultraviolet exposure. We present an unusual case of a 29-year-old Australian male visiting Greenland who presented with severe itchy bullous eruption on his hands. The cause was a combination of exposure to lime fruit juice and prolonged sun exposure from the Arctic midnight sun. Read More

Phytophotodermatitis is a condition that occurs by contact with plants containing phototoxic agents such as furocoumarins and psoralens with subsequent ultraviolet exposure. Phytophotodermatitis typically presents as sharply defined erythematous patches with occasional blistering, sometimes accompanied with pain or itching sensation. In some cases, however, sudden appearance of asymptomatic hyperpigmentation can be the only clinical finding of phytophotodermatitis. Read More

Phytophotodermatitis is almost exclusively reported in the dermatological literature, but may progress to a chemical burn. There has been widespread media reporting during the summer of 2015 of burns caused by giant hogweed. However, there is a lack of awareness of this mechanism of injury amongst the burn multidisciplinary team, and there have been no published articles in the surgical literature regarding plant burns, other than sporadic case reports, for 20 years.

Background: The cutaneous manifestations of pathological conditions have been described to mirror findings commonly associated with child abuse. Although it is important for clinicians to report suspected abuse, vigilance is required to detect conditions that mimic abuse. Phytophotodermatitis, a phototoxic reaction to furocoumarin-containing plants, is a well-described mimicker of nonaccidental trauma. Read More
