Sodium fluorescein is an organic dye widely used as a diagnostic aid. This article reports a case of a photosensitivity reaction associated with intravenous administration in a healthy volunteer. To our knowledge, this is the 1st case of a photosensitivity reaction of the immediate type due to fluorescein reported in the literature, which probably indicates its very low incidence. The literature on photosensitization to fluorescein is reviewed.
