Actinic prurigo (AP) is a chronic photosensitivity disease, which is mainly described in Amerindians and rarely in Caucasians(1-6) . The pathogenesis of AP is unclear, although familial occurrence is often seen, with a strong association with HLA DR4 and in particular HLA DRB1*0407, which is present only rarely in the general population(7,8) .
