AbstractExposure to UVA following oral psoralens for the treatment of psoriasis is associated with systemic side effects which are absent if bath water delivery of psoralens is practiced. We have compared the relative therapeutic effectiveness of these 2 modes of drug delivery in skin types IV and V. To date all such studies have been done only in skin types I, II and III. Bath PUVA although relatively expensive is an effective and acceptable mode of drug delivery.
