Abstract

Objective: To present a case of aquagenic urticaria and to review theliterature regarding this very rare physical urticaria. Method: We described the clinical history of a patient with aquagenic urticaria. A water challenge test was performed, with plasma histamine levels measured before and after the challenge. Result: Our patient presented witha history of severe itching and wheals within five minutes of contactwith water, regardless of its temperature or source (sea or tap water). A water challenge produced hives but serum histamine levels did notchange. Prophylaxis with antihistamine or anticholinergic medicationswas not effective. Conclusion: Exposure to water can cause urticaria in susceptible patients and antihistamine and anticholinergic medication may not prevent the reaction. The mechanism of this phenomenon remains poorly understood.
