Bilateral comparison of generalized lichen planus treated with psoralens and ultraviolet A.
Ten patients with generalized lichen planus were treated with oral 8-methoxypsoralen photochemotherapy (PUVA) in a bilateral comparison study. Five patients (50%) cleared completely on both sides andExpand
Extramammary Paget's disease of the perianal and perineal regions. Evidence of apocrine derivation.
A case of perianal and perineal extramammary Paget's disease in a male is reported. The presence of gross cystic disease fluid protein--a new marker of apocrine epithelia--in Paget's cells providesExpand
Morphologic alterations of epidermal melanocytes and melanosomes in PUVA lentigines: a comparative ultrastructural investigation of lentigines induced by PUVA and sunlight.
Ultrastructural studies were conducted in order to determine morphologic and functional differences in melanocytes and melanosomes in PUVA lentigines and solar lentigines, and light-protected buttockExpand
The PUVA-induced pigmented macule: a lentiginous proliferation of large, sometimes cytologically atypical, melanocytes.
Eleven PUVA-induced pigmented macules (PM) obtained from seven psoriatic adults 4 to 6 years after starting PUVA therapy were compared to eight sun-induced pigmented macules (SM) and five specimensExpand
Ultraviolet A phototherapy in the prophylaxis of solar urticaria.
Five patients with solar urticaria were treated with ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation. Three experienced marked increases in sunlight tolerance, but two patients failed to improve. Subjective clinicalExpand
Outpatient phototherapy for psoriasis.
Using a new protocol with varied exposure increments, we found that, in 18 of 20 patients with psoriasis vulgaris who were given ultraviolet (UV)-B phototherapy three times a week, the diseaseExpand
Combination of psoralens and ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B in the treatment of psoriasis vulgaris: a bilateral comparison study.
Forty-two adults with psoriasis vulgaris were treated total body thrice weekly with both ultraviolet B (UVB) and psoralens and ultraviolet A (PUVA) with the use of protocols shown to be effectiveExpand
A new liquid formulation of 8-methoxypsoralen: bioactivity and effect of diet.
A new encapsulated liquid preparation of methoxsalen (8-MOP) and a commonly used crystalline preparation (Oxsoralen) were compared in 12 subjects. Each subject ingested 0.6 mg/kg body weight of eachExpand
Psoralens and UV-A and UV-B twice weekly for the treatment of psoriasis.
In an effort to determine if combination phototherapy (psoralens and UV-A [PUVA]) [PUVA-UV-B]) administered twice weekly provides a substantial advantage over therapy with PUVA alone, we investigatedExpand
Modifications of PUVA.
The goal of photochemotherapy in psoriasis is to attempt to lower the number of exposures and the total cumulative doses while still maintaining good control of the disease. PUVA has been modified byExpand
