ImplementationThis section has been translated automatically.
A prerequisite for provocative light tests is the prior performance of the light stairs in the UV-A and UV-B range. S.u. MED. This can prevent grossly pathological reactions with damage to the skin. The tests are modified depending on the clinical symptoms (in-loco-irradiation over several days, use of UV spectra suspected to be the trigger, testing in places that do not appear at the time of testing, not accustomed to light, but which are considered reactive as known from anamnestic data! Special procedure: see below Light dermatosis, polymorphic.
