METHODOLOGY The present study was carried out as a cross-sectional study at Department of Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy, Era's Lucknow Medical College & Hospital, Lucknow. A total of 100 patients of photodermatoses (PMLE) during a period of one year were included in the study. Those having immunocompromised status, malignancy, Drug & Chemical induced photosensitivity and those having Dermatoses exacerbated by UVR were excluded from the assessment.

Polymorphous light eruption: a common skin disease uncommonly recognized in the Hispanic population
TLDR
The first case of a 41-year-old Hispanic female diagnosed with PMLE is reported, and a high index of suspicion must remain in this group of Hispanics, despite no case reports or literature regarding PMLE in Hispanics.
Polymorphous light eruption: a common reaction uncommonly recognized.
TLDR
It is suggested that PMLE is a common disorder but that many individuals have a high threshold of response to sunlight exposure, and that there was one notable exception in the amount of sunlight required to trigger the eruption.
A Prospective Observational Study on Clinico - Pathological Correlation in Polymorphous Light Eruption
TLDR
This study highlights the clinico pathological correlation in polymorphous light eruption, one of the abnormal responses of sunlight exposure, in patients with skin types I to VI during the period of March.

TLDR
The recent demonstration that the female hormone, 17β-estradiol prevents UVR-induced suppression of the contact hypersensitivity response caused by the release of immunosuppressive cytokines from keratinocytes might explainWhy the risk of PLE is higher in females than in males and why the risk decreases in women after the menopause.
A Clinico-Pathological Study of Poly Morphous Light Eruption
TLDR
Papules and plaque type of lesions of PMLE of longer duration clinched the histo-pathological diagnosis and PMLE is commonly observed in females between 21 - 30 years of age.
A clinicoepidemiological study of polymorphic light eruption.
TLDR
The manifestation of PLE was most common in housewives in areas exposed to the sun and most of the PLE patients presented with mild symptoms and rash around the neck, forearms and arms which was aggravated on exposure to sunlight.
Current aspects of polymorphous light eruptions in Sweden.
TLDR
PMLE is a common disorder and milder forms seem to be more prevalent than earlier described in northern countries such as Sweden, and they required rather high doses of sunlight to trigger their eruptions.
Clinical, laboratory, phototest and phototherapy findings in polymorphic light eruptions: a retrospective study of 133 patients.
TLDR
It was revealed that the use of a sunscreen with a mean sun protection factor (SPF) of 14 did not prevent skin lesions in 88% of PLE patients, and two peaks were found in the distribution curve of the individual latent interval, the time between light exposure and the appearance of skin lesions.

TLDR
Development of tolerance during the summer was more common in Perth and Ballarat than in London, and the age distribution and male: female ratio was similar for affected individuals in all three areas.
