ABSTRACT: Randomly selected vitiligo patients were treated with local corticosteroid and local psoralen solution (10 patients), oral psoralen (54 patients), oral psoralen and oral corticosteroid (25 patients) and oral corticosteroid (15 patients) for a period of 6 months to 1 year. The patients were evaluated at 2-4 weeks interval by noting the percentage of pigmentation. Good to excellent results were obtained with a combination of oral psoralen and oral corticosteroid in 72 percent cases which was the best result in comparison to other regimens. Acrofacial type were relatively resistant to treatment.
