Actinic reticuloid is a severe and incapacity photodermatitis. Clinically, it is characterised by extreme photosensitivity to a broad spectrum of radiation and histologically by a lymphomatoid infiltrate. The cause is unknown but sometimes it is a progression from photocontact dermatitis.

The condition is far more common in men than women, and in the elderly.
