Abstract

This preliminary study suggests that a I h application of dithranol may be effective in the treatment of psoriasis. It is conceivable that short application periods for other topically applied agents, e.g. corticosteroids, may reduce the side-effects in non-affected skin, while maintaining the therapeutic benefit in diseased areas.
