A new light source that provides high-intensity ultraviolet light (UVA) (300 to 400 nm) to the entire body surface makes orally administered psoralen treatment of vitilligo with an artificial light practical. In the 26 patients studied, the degree of repigmentation with either trioxsalen (TMP) or methoxsalen (8-MOP) and high intensity UVA was at least as great as that with the same oral agents and sunlight. With artificial UVA and similar treatment conditions, the two psoralen derivatives were compared in the treatment of vitiligo; TMP stimulated repigmentation as well as 8-MOP and caused fewer side effects...

A 12-year-old boy with vitiligo, chronic thrombocytopenia, and a Coombs's positive autoimmune hemolytic anemia was treated with oral psoralens and exposure to ultraviolet light. An acute hemolytic crisis developed and he died. The association of autoimmune hemolytic anemia and vitilligo should be looked for in other cases. Until more information is available, patients with vitiligo and thrombocytopenia should not be treated with psoralens and exposure to ultraviolet light.
