Narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy associated with improvement in Netherton syndrome
Clinical and Experimental Dermatology, 06/04/2012
Maatouk I et al. – The authors report a case of Netherton syndrome (NS) with failure of low–dose oral isotretinoin, for which narrowband ultraviolet B (NB–UVB) phototherapy, through its apoptosis–inducing and immunomodulatory effects, was effective. However, long–term use of UVB is limited by its potential side–effects.
