In animal models for several such infectious diseases, UVB irradiation alters pathogenesis and immunity. In a murine model for cutaneous leishmaniasis, UVB irradiation applied during the fIrst exposure to Leishmania altered the pathology of primary skin lesions, abrogated the induction of protective immunity, and may have predisposed the mice to fatal systemic leishmaniasis. UVB irradiation of mouse skin causes a spectrum of immunological and fIne structural alterations also seen in human skin.
