Genital tumors among men with psoriasis exposed to psoralens and ultraviolet A radiation (PUVA) and ultraviolet B radiation

Genital Tumors among Men with Psoriasis Exposed to Psoralens and Ultraviolet A Radiation (PUVA) and Ultraviolet B Radiation. Robert S. Genital tumors among men with psoriasis exposed to psoralens and ultraviolet A radiation (PUVA) and ultraviolet B radiation. Exposure to PUVA has far less effect on the risk of basal cell cancer. (grenz rays or x-rays for the treatment of psoriasis), ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation, tar, and methotrexate, both before and after exposure to PUVA was documented. Genital tumors among men with psoriasis exposed to psoralens and ultraviolet A radiation (PUVA) and ultraviolet B radiation.

H, Schemper, M, Ortel, B et al, Skin tumors in photochemotherapy for psoriasis: a single-center follow-up of 496 patients. What are ultraviolet (UV) rays? Recommendations for people undergoing UVB or PUVA phototherapy. They can cause suntan and sunburn, and also carry the risk of skin cancer to some individuals after high- and long-term exposure. The treatment combining Psoralen and UVA is termed PUVA. Men must wear genital protection. There is concern about possible association between PUVA treatment and an increased risk of noncutaneous cancer.

N Engl J Med 1990;322:1093-7. Psoralens enter the cells and intercalate between DNA base pairs. Men exposed to PUVA have an increased risk of genital skin cancer. However, it poses a higher risk for skin cancers than UVB. People should avoid this treatment if they are taking drugs or have conditions that cause them to be light sensitive.
