Abstract

Bloom syndrome is a rare genodermatosis of autosomal recessive inheritance. Although lupus-like skin lesions characterize this disorder, mechanisms of photosensitivity are poorly understood. In this case presentation, the authors report a patient with Bloom syndrome whose lupus-like facial rash revealed striking histopathologic similarities to cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
