The use of narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy for mycosis fungoides (MF) has proven to be beneficial to some extent – when treatment is stopped, rapid recurrences are more common and therefore impact the efficacy of the treatment. Results of this study supported the use of narrowband UVB phototherapy in patients with MF, as well as suggesting narrowband UVB phototherapy as a maintenance treatment option for these patients.
