    • LED is a relatively benign, autoimmune condition that affects the dog's nasal planum and in which systemic manifestations are absent.
    • It is the second most common immune-mediated skin pathology in dogs.
    • Exposure to ultraviolet light aggravates and exacerbates LED and there are breeds that may be predisposed since they are reported more frequently, as the Collie, Shetland Sheep Dog, Australian Shepherd, German Shepherd and Siberian Husky.
    • Therapeutic approaches are multiple and different effectiveness has been reported.
