ABSTRACT Voriconazole is an antifungal agent mainly used against aspergillosis. Given its wide spectrum of action and limited adverse effects, it has become the drug of choice in the prophylactic treatment of immunocompromised patients, replacing amphotericin B. Several adverse effects are caused by this drug with dermatological reactions accounting for 6% of the total. Such reactions include cheilitis, erythema, erosions, discoid lupus erythematosus, erythema multiforme, photosensitivity reactions, pseudoporphyria, accelerated photoaging and skin cancer. There are few reports on the accelerated photoaging caused by voriconazole and its effective treatment. Here we present the case of a 6-year old child with a history of chronic granulomatous disease under prolonged treatment with voriconazole who developed accelerated photoaging lesions secondary to the chronic use of this antifungal agent. Treatment was initiated with switched QS Nd: YAG laser with good results.
