Burn injury: sunlight and a single dose of methoxsalen.

Abstract

A patient is described in whom burn injury, caused by moderate exposure to sunlight in the U.K., was precipitated by undue sensitivity to a photosensitizing agent methoxsalen. This drug, although withdrawn in the UK, is freely available in the Republic of Ireland and many EEC countries for the treatment of psoriasis and acne vulgaris.
