Treatment of psoriasis by topical photodynamic therapy with polychromatic light 2Demonstration of therapeutic efficacy using a polychromatic light source was an important step toward clinical application of PDT in the treatment of psoriasis. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is treatment used mainly for superficial types of skin cancer. Nonlaser light that emits polychromatic light is also suitable when using different photosensitisers with different absorption maxima. Although PDT remains an investigational treatment modality in dermatology, several important areas of development may ultimately lead to official and practical acceptance of PDT for the skin.
