Abstract We read with interest the case report entitled “Contact with fig tree sap: An unusual cause of burn injury” by Mandalia et al. [1] and would like to report our similar experience with phytophotodermatitis caused by lime juice. Phototoxic dermatitis is understandably easily confused with a burn, particularly when a patient presents with large blisters of unknown mechanism. At the Royal Children's Hospital Burns Centre, this injury was treated in the same manner as a burn and is described here.
