We thank Kemény et al for their comments on our article in arecent issue of the ARCHIVES.1 We agreethat the 308-nm excimer laser is a very effective tool for the treatment ofpsoriasis. Our subsequent unpublished studies confirm that rapid clearingcan be achieved in most patients, compared with both conventional broadbandand NB-UVB historical controls. We also readily acknowledge that for 6 patients,Kemény et al established the superiority of the 308-nm excimer laserover narrow-band 311-nm phototherapy for the treatment of localized psoriasis.2
