Let’s Be Clear!

There are many conditions that are “photoresponsive”. Meaning that they respond favorably to light.  The most common of these conditions are Psoriasis, Vitiligo and Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis).  Although sunlight has an association with medical treatment from at least as far back as the ancient Greeks, including favorable mentions from Herodotus and Hippocrates, a scientific approach to photomedicine is a relatively recent development dating to Niels Finsen’s work in the late 19th century.
Finsen won the 1903 Nobel prize for his work using arc lamp sources to treat lupus vulgaris and small pox. This was followed by a steady stream of developments over the remainder of the century: Broadband mercury lamps, FS fluorescent lamps, Psoralen+UVA (PUVA), and Narrowband UVB.
Currently, with some 40 years of experience with PUVA, 25 years of Narrowband UVB, and 20 years of UVA1, a large variety of diseases have been successfully treated with phototherapy, ranging from the very common such as eczema and psoriasis to the very rare such as cutaneous GVHD.
