Mr Oscar WONG (Physiotherapist I, United Christian Hospital)
Phototherapy, including narrowband-UVB, broadband-UVB, psoralen-UVA photochemotherapy (PUVA) and excimer laser therapy are valuable tools that can be used for photoresponsive dermatoses in children. The paediatric population is a special population for whom it is important to avoid systemic agents which includes prebiologic and biological therapies. Phototherapy thereby represents a safer alternative from systemic therapy in a number of appropriately selected cases. Phototherapy may be considered a possible treatment option for children with dermatological diseases such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, pityriasis lichenoides chronica and vitiligo. This seminar aims at introducing the fundamental principles of phototherapy, explaining the clinical merits and possible complications with real life illustrations specially focus on the subspecialty Paediatric Dermatology.
