Abstract

Itch is one of the cardinal symptoms of polymorphic light eruption (PLE), the most common form of photodermatosis known to be mediated immunologically.1-3 Indeed, very often itch precedes the skin lesions of the condition or may be even the only symptom in PLE, 4 which sometimes is aggravated to a burning sensation. There have been reports of a variant called PLE sine eruption, with intense pruritus on the sun-exposed parts without any visible skin changes. This article is protected by copyright.
