NB UVB in Children

This 10 year old patient presented to me with a vitiligo patch of diamension 8cm x 4 cm. She had evidence of dental infection which was corrected first. I was reluctant to start her on Narrow Band UVB. However recent studies have demonstrated its efficacy and safety in children. I started her on a weekly once regimn with excellant results as shown here (Pre treatment photograph is not available.) However lesion still remains over the area of elastic band of the goggles!

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
