BACKGROUND Vitamin D is produced in the human skin by short wavelength (290-315 nm) ultraviolet (UV) radiation. PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate how outdoor conditions may influence the serum levels of 25(OH) vitamin D in psoriasis patients under narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy. METHODS The winter and summer groups of patients received almost the same narrowband UV (nUVB) doses during whole-body phototherapy. The 25(OH)D serum concentration was measured before and… CONTINUE READING
