BACKGROUND Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a well-documented treatment for actinic keratosis (AK), but achieves inferior efficacy in organ transplant recipients (OTRs), particularly in acral regions. Ablative fractional laser (AFXL) intensifies the PDT response and may improve the efficacy of AK clearance when used as monotherapy. OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy of a single treatment with AFXL-assisted PDT vs. AFXL alone for difficult-to-treat AKs and wart-like lesions (WLLs) in OTRs… CONTINUE READING
