Role of Narrowband Ultraviolet B Phototherapy in the Treatment of Childhood Psoriasis in Asian Children.

Abstract

Narrowband ultraviolet B (NBUVB) phototherapy is a well-established treatment modality for psoriasis. We performed a retrospective analysis of children of East Asian descent with psoriasis treated with NBUVB phototherapy at the National Skin Centre, Singapore, over a 5-year period between 2004 and 2008 and found that NBUVB phototherapy is safe and effective for the treatment of psoriasis in children of East Asian descent.
