PUVA Therapy

What is PUVA therapy?

PUVA therapy is the combination of an oral drug taken in conjunction with long wave ultraviolet radiation (UVA). It is often used to treat a number of skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, mycosis fungoides, vitiligo, parapsoriasis and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

PUVA therapy requires a regular therapy schedule, and often a period of maintenance therapy to ensure effective treatment.
