Kumar, Rao, Gopal, et al. included 150 patients with vitiligo in a study to determine the safety and efficacy of narrowband ultraviolet B (NBUVB) phototherapy. In addition to good patient adherence and compliance, “our study, like all other studies, establishes that NBUVB therapy is an effective and safe modality to treat vitiligo of all age groups with cosmetically acceptable re-pigmentation.”
