An 87-year-old man was referred to our photobiology unit in August 2015 for the diagnosis and treatment of eczematous lesions involving the sun-exposed areas (face, dorsal aspects of hands, and feet) that he had suffered from for >5 years.

On examination, facial erythema with non-adhering desquamation, marked…

Drug-Induced Photosensitivity—From Light and Chemistry to Biological Reactions and Clinical Symptoms

TLDR
The chemical and biological basis of drug-induced photosensitivity is reviewed, including the chemical properties, the influence of individual ranges of sunlight, the presence of melanin biopolymers, and the defense mechanisms of particular types of tested cells.
