  • Contains real-life scenarios of patient cases in which phototherapy is an appropriate treatment option for the specific skin condition presented, followed by detailed discussion on management of these cases
  • Includes cases on various photo-responsive skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, atopic dermatitis, chronic pruritus, prurigo nodularis, vitiligo, mycosis fungoides
  • Highlights difficult clinical cases such as adverse effects of phototherapy, when to avoid phototherapy, when patients start a photosensitizing medication, followed by discussion of management of these difficult cases
  • Discusses using phototherapy with other treatment modalities, such as systemic retinoids, other oral medications, biologic agents

This case book will be based on real life scenarios of patient cases which have been encountered over several decades in one of the largest phototherapy centers in the United States. To our knowledge, there has not been anything similar published to date. By presenting various cases and how to manage such cases, we aim to educate dermatology trainees and practicing dermatologist who are trying to familiarize themselves with phototherapy. A recent study has shown that many dermatologists do not know how to administer phototherapy, and most graduating residents do not have adequate teaching and experience with administering phototherapy during their residencies. Therefore, the hope is that this book will fill a critical gap in the field of dermatology.
