A review of UVA-mediated photosensitivity disorders
A number of skin conditions are characterised by photosensitivity to UVA. Some of these are exclusively UVA-mediated conditions, while others include UVA in the action spectrum which also include UVB and/or visible light. This review aims to describe this diverse range of conditions for non-dermatologist scientists with an interest in this topic. As such, clinical details, including treatments, are brief and succinct. Recent advances in understanding the pathogenesis of these conditions is highlighted.
