f03: Light microscopy with necrotic epidermis (x 100), inset with detail of the vesicleformation with intraepidermal lymphocytes (x 400).

Mentions: Light microscopy showed epidermal necrosis with lymphocytic infiltration (Figure 3). Laboratory tests for lupus erythematosus(ANA) and uroporphyrines were normal. There are no similar cases in her family. Therewas little improvement with the use of highly protective sunscreens (SPF 45), with onsetof new lesions. Topical antibiotics were prescribed for secondary infection.
