We describe the case of a girl affected by solar urticaria induced by visible light.
Although light provocation test is difficult to perform, it is essential for the correct diagnosis and management of solar urticaria
Avoidance of sunlight exposure and antihistamines are the mainstay of treatment in children with solar urticaria
Short-term use of oral steroids should be reserved for disease flares
Third line therapy, e.g. omalizumab, should be considered only in patients with solar urticaria refractory to conventional treatment.
