Photocontact dermatitis [berloque dermatitis]


phototoxic dermatitis: a form of allergic contact dermatitis in which the allergen must be activated by light to sensitize the allergic response, and to cause a rash or other systemic effects on subsequent exposure. The second and subsequent exposures produce photoallergic skin conditions which are often eczematous. In rare cases the victims die.
