Idiopathic photodermatoses unrelated to secondary causes are loosely classified into the following categories: polymorphic light eruption (PMLE), actinic prurigo, hydroa vacciniforme (HV), chronic actinic dermatitis, and solar urticaria.
Here a patient with hydroa vacciniforme (HV) which is one of the photodermatoses and for which early diagnosis and treatment is important, since it improves by leaving scar was presented with the consent of the family.
Differential diagnoses included scarring secondary to varicella, atrophoderma vermiculatum, hydroa vacciniforme and infantile acne but these were excluded by the chronic course, clinical findings and lack of seasonal variation.
The lack of vesicles, burning pain, crusting, scarring, or an elevated red blood cell protoporphyrin test ruled out other differential diagnoses, including hydroa vacciniforme and erythropoietic protoporphyria.
