Abstract

Photodynamic therapy is a relatively new and rapidly evolving therapeutic option in dermatology. Initially used for the treatment of actinic damage and nonmelanotic skin cancer, more recent work indicates efficacy in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, such as acne, infectious processes, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, and photorejuvenation, among others. This article provides a comprehensive review of applications and outcomes that use topical photodynamic therapy in the treatment of dermatologic disease.
