AbstractOver a period of 5 years, 490 patients with vitiligo were treated with either steroid or psoralen and their response to therapy was observed. Koebner's negative patients showed satisfactory response to psoralen. Patients who were Koebner's positive initially and then turned negative after steroid therapy showed better response to combination of steroids and psoralen.
