102 Possible Causes for Blisters in Sun-Exposed Areas, Progressive Peripapillary Chorioretinal Atrophy

  • Porphyria Cutanea Tarda

    We describe three HIV-positive patients, which showed photosensitivity as well as the emergence of tense blisters on sun-exposed areas during the use of highly active antiretroviral[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bilateral, geographic, peripapillary chorioretinal atrophy is evident and shows progression over a significant period despite improving the PCT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The initial clinical presentation commonly includes mechanical fragility of the skin and blisters in sun-exposed areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Erythropoietic Porphyria

    Clinical manifestations range from severe mutilation to mild erosions and blisters on sun-exposed areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] High index of suspicion is needed in all cases ofcutaneous photosensitivity, red colored urine and blistering over sun-exposed areas to rule out CEP.[doi.org] He reported multiple, recurrent, discrete blisters developing on sun-exposed areas that healed with scarring and passing red-colored urine for more than 25 years.[nejm.org]

  • Porphyria

    About porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is a disorder characterized by thinning and blistering of the skin in sun-exposed areas.[publichealth.va.gov] Their skin becomes fragile and blistered, generally on sun-exposed areas (such as the face, neck, hands, and forearms) or on damaged skin.[merckmanuals.com] In this case, the hallmark is photosensitivity (an excessive reaction to light), which causes chronic blistering and even burns on sun-exposed areas.[web.archive.org]

  • Coronary Atherosclerosis

    Porphyria Cutanea Tarda A disorder characterized by liver dysfunction and by thinning and blistering of the skin in sun-exposed areas.[publichealth.va.gov]

  • Hemochromatosis

    […] seen on sun-exposed areas in most patients.[clinicaladvisor.com] The circulation and deposition of porphyrins in the skin lead to reactivity with light producing reactive oxygen species that account for the photosensitive, blistering skin[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Variegate Porphyria

    […] lesions in sun-exposed areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 7-year-old Chilean boy presented with severe photosensitivity, blistering, erosions and scarring on sun-exposed areas of the body since the age of 6 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patient 2 A Swiss female developed blistering and increased skin fragility at the sun-exposed areas of her body at the age of 80 years.[medicaljournals.se]

  • Vitiligo

    This is then exposed to sunlight. Such topical treatment makes a person very susceptible to severe burn and blisters following too much sun exposure.[aocd.org] […] occasionally for children or patients with small, scattered vitiligo patches, involves the application of a very dilute solution of the drug directly to the affected skin area[aocd.org]

  • Pigmented Paravenous Retinochoroidal Atrophy

    ) is a rare, commonly bilateral and symmetric retinal disease characterized by non-progressive or slowly progressive chorioretinal atrophy, peripapillary pigmentary changes[orpha.net] atrophy: pericentral pigmentary retinopathy, helicoid peripapillary chorioretinal degeneration, serpiginous choroidopathy, gyrate atrophy chorioderemia, sarcoidosis, syphilis[eyewiki.org] . • Case 1 shows the progression of a patient with high myopia and pathologic chorioretinal atrophy.[reviewofoptometry.com]

    Blisters on sun-exposed areas. Red-brown colored urine.[lecturio.com] Patient 2 A Swiss female developed blistering and increased skin fragility at the sun-exposed areas of her body at the age of 80 years.[medicaljournals.se] Patients experience chronic blistering lesions resulting from mild trauma to sun-exposed areas.[mayomedicallaboratories.com]

  • Hydroa Vacciniforme

    We report an 11-year-old boy with a 5-year history of recurrent blisters on sun-exposed areas that deteriorated each summer.[content.sciendo.com] Symptoms occurred throughout the year and the most common dermatologic manifestations included redness, blisters, bumps, scars, itching, and burning, predominantly on sun-exposed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is characterized by appearance of vesicles on sun-exposed areas. The vesicles crust and heal within one to six weeks, leaving vacciniform/varioliform scars.[content.sciendo.com]
