Abstract

The response to ultraviolet light and the histologic appearance of the epidermis was studied in two brothers with histidinemia. One of the siblings demonstrated a decreased minimal erythema dose while the other more pigmented brother showed a normal response. The epidermis appeared to be normal by light and electron microscopy.
