A comparative study on efficacy of UVA1 vs. narrow-band UVB phototherapy in the treatment of vitiligo

Photodermatology, Photoimmunology and Photomedicine, 04/04/2012

Narrow–band ultraviolet B (NB–UVB) phototherapy remains to be an effective and safe therapeutic option in vitiligo. Response to UVA1 in vitiligo seems to be dose dependent and seems to be of limited value in treatment of vitiligo as a monotherapy. Further studies combining it with other lines of therapy such as systemic steroids may prove beneficial.
