Title:
Photoallergic Contact Dermatitis due to Combined UVB (4-Methylbenzylidene Camphor/Octyl Methoxycinnamate) and UVA (Benzophenone-3/Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane) Absorber Sensitization 
Abstract:
In a 71-year-old male Caucasian patient with persistent eczema on light-exposed skin, photocontact allergy was demonstrated to the UV filter substances 4-methylbenzylidene camphor (UVB), octyl methoxycinnamate (UVB), benzophenone-3 (UVA) and butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (UVA) present in sunscreen products used by the patient over several years. A significantly reduced UVB sensitivity of 25 mJ/cm2 in this patient (normal minimal erythema dose in our laboratory = 70–130 mJ/cm2) was considered an...    »
