Abstract

Photochemotherapy is a new concept in treating selected skin disease. Psoralens taken orally two hours before high-intensity UVA radiation results in clinical clearing of psoriasis, mycosis fungoides, vitiligo, and atopic eczema. The results of two large cooperative studies in the treatment of psoriasis presented similar results.
