Improvement or cure in palmar lesions was observed in 90% of cases in the topical steroid/coal–tar group and in 75% of cases in the topical topical psoralen and solar ultraviolet A group; for the soles, these figures were 76% and 79%, respectively. Both treatments had comparable efficacy. In both groups, patients experienced ‘good improvement’ after 16 weeks of therapy.
