Vibratory urticaria

Synonyms: Vibratory angioedema/urticaria

Vibratory urticaria is a rare genetic urticaria characterized by the development of localized short-lasting (resolving within 1 hour) pruritic erythematous edematous hives in response to repetitive frictional or vibratory stimulation of the skin which in some cases is accompanied by facial flushing headache or the sensation of a metallic taste. Concomitant local mast cell degranulation and increased histamine serum levels are additional typical findings.
