Abstract

The current treatments for Vitiligo are not completely satisfactory in terms of clinical, aesthetic and compliance results for patients. Recently, combination therapies had been introduced with positive results. In this paper the combination between systemic oral treatment with Low Dose Cytokines in association with other topical treatments was evaluated. Positive results were obtained both with Low Dose Cytokines alone or in association with microphototherapy with positive percentage of skin repigmentation varying between 74% and 90%. Collected data allow the authors to affirm that the treatment with oral low dose SKA drugs is efficacious per se and highly efficacious in association with targeted phototherapy.
