Squamous cell carcinoma in a psoriasis patient after multiple courses of phototherapy

Cover Page

Abstract

The authors present a clinical case study of squamous cell carcinoma in a psoriasis patient after 24 courses of phototherapy (22 courses of PUVA therapy and two courses of mid-wavelength ultraviolet therapy (311 nm)). The malignant neoplasm developed against the background of signs of a chronic photodamage of the skin: lentigo, actinic elastosis, diffuse hyperpigmentation, spotty skin pigmentation.
