    Abstract

    As phototoxic skin reactions caused by psoralen are induced by wavelengths within the UVA1 spectrum, we assessed the potential of the small amount of psoralen in a normal diet to provoke phototoxicity in volunteers with skin types I and II. Threshold erythema was unaffected by ingestion of a 200-g portion of parsnip.
