Mycosis fungoides treated with Puva and Topical Corticosteroids
M Raman, Paschal Souza D, JS Prasad Ravindra, Iyer
An 89-year old patient had mycosis fungoides with extensive skin involvement and palpable but pathologically uninvolved lymph nodes. He was successfully treated with PUVA combined with topical 0.1% fluocinolone acetonide ointment. PUVA therapy is highly effective in the treatment of mycosis fungoides confined to the skin, especially in the elderly where more aggressive therapy may not be tolerated.
