Targeted UV-B Phototherapy: When and Why to Start

Arch Dermatol. 2006;142(7):927-947. doi:10.1001/archderm.142.7.933

We read with interest the article by Asawanonda and colleagues1 on the use of targeted UV-B phototherapy for plaque-type psoriasis, in which the authors describe results reported by our research team in a study dealing with similar treatments.2 We totally agree that targeted UV-B phototherapy is safe and convenient for the treatment of some skin disorders, including localized and recalcitrant psoriasis in plaques.
