Abstract:Aquagenic urticaria is a very rare form of physical urticaria induced by contact with water. In this case report, we describe a child with a typical form of the disease in whom other types of physical urticaria were ruled out. Clinical manifestations, investigational methodology, and available treatments were reviewed. Treatment with hydroxyzine, 25 mg daily, was successful after a month follow-up in preventing wheals and erythema. However, mild pruritus is still present after contact with water.
