Actinic Reticuloid Syndrome -- See Photosensitivity Disorders


Abnormal responses to sunlight or artificial light due to extreme reactivity of light-absorbing molecules in tissues.

Common clinical manifestations include progressive weakness, loss of sensation, and loss of deep tendon reflexes. Weakness of respiratory muscles and autonomic dysfunction may occur.
