The outcome of treatment in 120 cases of vitiligo receiving psoralen was analyzed. Forty patients were treated with topical psoralen, another 40 patients were given oral psoralen and the remaining 40 patients used, both oral and topical psoralens. Treatment was given once daily followed by sun exposure for 6 months. Fourteen cases using topical psoralen, 22 patients receiving oral psoralen lvmg and 24 patients receiving combined treatment showed partial repigmentation. Only 15% cases using oral psoralen alone showed complete repigmentation. Combined treatment was the most effective, leading to complete repigmrntation in 30% patients.
