Abstract Erythropoietic Protoporphyria With Eczema Solare: Report of 3 Cases. Presented by Dr. Meyer Berke, and Dr. Allan G. Redeker (by invitation). An eight-year-old boy was previously presented to the Los Angeles Dermatologic Society on March 14, 1962, as a case for diagnosis—?Hydroa Vacciniforme—because of recurrent bouts of an eczematous eruption in the sun-exposed areas since age 3, resulting in atrophic linear scars on the face, neck, and ears and hypertrophic papular and follicular plaques on the dorsa of the hands, wrists, and elbows. At that time no suggested diagnosis seemed adequate. Studies for urine uro- and coproporphyrins had been negative on three occasions in the past. The patient was subsequently referred in May, 1962, to Dr. Allan Redeker for further and more extensive examination of the urine, blood, and stool for prophyrins.
