Thanks to Dr Yee Wah Tsang for sharing this case with me.
Yes no tricks we interpreted this as typical of polymorphous light eruption.
The history was F50 with itchy sun induced lesions on the thighs, back, arms and abdomen. Positive anti-Ro and antinuclear factor. ?Lupus, ?PLE

Weedon comments as follows: associations [of PLE] include lupus and thyroid disease. & CVID.
Elevated titres of ANA in PLE is not associated with progression to LE.
Probably it [PLE] is an autoimmune disease against UV induced cutaneous antigen.
