Abstract: Photoallergic diseases: solar urticaria (Type I immediate allergy), and photoallergic contact dermatitis (Type IV delayed allergy) too frequently remain undiagnosed and treated with unspecific modalities as "sun allergy". Yet aimed diagnostic procedures - photoprovocation and photopatch tests, allow the doctor to establish the proper diagnosis and choose adequate treatment, which favorably influences the patient' quality of life.
Key words: photoallergy, solar urticaria, photoallergic contact dermatitis, photoprovocation, photopatch tests, photoallergens.
