A case of photosensitivity induced by itraconazole is reported. A 70-year-old woman had erythema, oedema and vesicles on sun-exposed areas after 5 days of itraconazole treatment for oral candidiasis. Oral photochallenge using itraconazole and sun irradiation was positive, but photopatch test was negative. Photosensitivity from azoles is an uncommon adverse effect. Only three other cases have been described, two induced by ketoconazole and one by itraconazole.
