    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Solar urticaria is a well defined although uncommon photosensitivity disorder, and is said to be the underlying cause of chronic urticaria in approximately 0.5% cases. In contrast, solar angioedema is seldom reported. We describe two patients with postulated solar angioedema, associated with clinical and/or phototest features of solar urticaria. Recognition of solar provocation of angioedema has important consequences for patient management. Copyright © Blackwell Munksgaard 2005.
