Abstract

A 71-year-old Korean farmer had pruritic erythematous patches on sun- exposed areas after enoxacin treatment for prostatitis. Suggestive features of photoallergy, such as moderate blurring of the margin and possible ectopic flare phenomenon, were reproduced by oral provocation test with enoxacin. Because all quinolones have structural similarities, and photosensitivity was observed in nalidixic acid and enoxacin, it would be advisable to warn all patients taking quinolones about photosensitivity.
