In a series of patients with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated hydroa vacciniforme (HV) and related disorders, we reviewed the incidence of oculomucosal and gastrointestinal involvement. Of 63 patients with EBV-related HV and/or hypersensitivity to mosquito bites (HMB), 11 patients (17.5%) presented with mucosal lesions such as aphthous stomatitis and ulcerative gingivitis, 3 patients (4.8%) had ocular symptoms including iritis, conjunctival hyperemia and corneal erosions, and 2 patients (3.2%) presented with severe HV complicated gastrointestinal involvement. Oculomucosal lesions are sometimes complicated in patients with EBV-related HV and HMB, and gastrointestinal involvement may occur in the severe form.
