A 21-year-old female patient, suffering for 14 years, triggers being strong emotional reactions, foul smell, and sunlight. She was diagnosed after a thorough history and extensive literature search as systemic symptoms are not usually suspected in the spectrum of CU. She was effectively managed with nonsedating antihistamines.
