A case of discoid lupus erythematosus and a case of a polymorphous light eruption are reported. The former was initiated by occupational ultraviolet light exposure. The second case was elicited by occupational exposure in a patient who had a ten-year history of sunlight sensitivity. Occupational exposure to ultraviolet light should be a consideration in light-sensitivity disease especially when the lesion is in an unusual location, as in our first patient, or at an unusual time of the year, as in our second patient.
