Background: Lupus erythematosus is a systemic disease process that may manifest with a variety of internal and cutaneous findings. Photosensitivity is one the most common manifestations of lupus erythematosus. In patients with lupus erythematosus, there is a relationship between exposure to ultraviolet light, autoantibodies, genetics and other factors in the development of photosensitivity. 
Systemic lupus erythematosus.
Exogenous Factors in Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
Exogenous factors implicated in or suspected of precipitating cutaneous lupus erythematosus are reviewed and environmental risk factors that are potentially related to the development of lupi are discussed.
Cutaneous lupus erythematosus
TLDR
A detailed patient’s history, evaluation of the activity and damage, histological analysis of skin biopsy specimens, phototesting, and serological investigations support the diagnosis of CLE, and also provide important information on the appropriate therapeutic strategy.
Lupus-like histopathology in bloom syndrome: reexamining the clinical and histologic implications of photosensitivity.
TLDR
A patient with Bloom syndrome whose lupus-like facial rash revealed striking histopathologic similarities to cutaneous l upus erythematosus is reported.
Therapy of cutaneous lupus erythematosus
TLDR
This review will discuss the available therapies, the data supporting their use and the authors’ own experience, in order to help guide the practitioner and to highlight the need for more clinical research in the treatment of cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
Bullous systemic lupus erythematosus induced by UVB: report a case.
TLDR
A middle-aged female patient, whose diagnosis of BSLE was suspected at first from the characteristic vesiculobullous eruption, histopathology, immunofluorescent pattern, and positive antinuclear antibody, is reported, who was later confirmed to have UVB photosensitivity that induced the typical skin lesions.
Photosensitivity in Lupus Erythematosus and Dermatomyositis
TLDR
Photosensitivity heavily impacts quality of life (QoL) in patients with LE and DM and by accurately recognizing these reactions, physicians can better treat these autoimmune conditions.

Pathogenesis of cutaneous lupus erythematosus: common and different features in distinct subsets
TLDR
The main pathological features described in CLE patients are reviewed against the background of the clinical diversity of different CLE subtypes.
Photoprotection, Photoimmunology and Autoimmune Diseases
There are several autoimmune diseases that are known to be aggravated by sun exposure, such as lupus erythematosus and dermatomyositis.

CUTANEOUS MANIFESTATIONS OF SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS: STUDY FROM LAHORE, PAKISTAN
TLDR
This study from Lahore, Pakistan, was conducted to determine the pattern and incidence of cutaneous lesions in Systemic lupus erythematosus.
A candidate gene analysis of three related photosensitivity disorders: cutaneous lupus erythematosus, polymorphic light eruption and actinic prurigo
TLDR
This poster focuses on the treatment of central giant cell granuloma, which is a common inherited photosensitivity disorder and may predispose to several related but distinct conditions.
RESPONSE OF CUTANEOUS LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS TO ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT.
Photosensitivity in lupus
TLDR
Clinical photosensitivity in lupus erythematosus is defined as an abnormal cutaneous response to UVR, a trait most commonly associated with cutaneous forms of LE but which may also manifest in SLE.
Photosensitivity in lupus erythematosus, UV photoprovocation results compared with history of photosensitivity and clinical findings
TLDR
It is shown that PLE coexists with LE and that both PLE‐ and LE‐like lesions can be induced with UV radiation in LE patients, and a positive association between the presence of SSA/Ro or SSB/La antibodies and a pathological photoprovocation reaction was found.
Phototesting in Lupus Erythematosus Tumidus—Review of 60 Patients ¶
TLDR
The high incidence of positive phototest reactions in correlation with the clinical findings, history of photosensitivity and antinuclear antibodies enable the classification of LET as the most photosensitive type of LE.
Systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Systemic lupus erythematosus is a relapsing and remitting disease, and treatment aims are threefold: managing acute periods of potentially life-threatening ill health, minimizing the risk of flares during periods of relative stability, and controlling the less life- threatening, but often incapacitating day to day symptoms.
Phototesting and photoprotection in LE
TLDR
The aim of this review is to give an overview on the history, test procedure and test results in patients with lupus erythematosus.
[Photobiological study of lupus erythematosus].
TLDR
Phototesting is useful to assess photosensitivity in lupus patients and no correlation between positivity of phototests and the presence of systemic involvement or anti-Ro/SSA antibodies was established.
