Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The records of all patients treated at Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami with a modified Goeckerman regimen from 1972 to 1977 were analyzed. When a stringent definition of "clearing" was applied, it was found that approximately half of the patients were cleared of their psoriasis on this regimen and that the time the patients remained clear following treatment averaged 125 days. The mean number of treatments required for clearing was twenty-four which is in the same range as reported for PUVA therapy. For those patients that cleared, this average number of treatments was a more important variable than the time over which the treatments were administered.
