Many therapeutic options have become available for treatment of vitiligo, however effects vary greatly, and results are often not satisfactory. Narrowband UVB is an efficient form of treatment as it provides positive therapeutic results and removes the requirement of a photosensitizing agent. These modalities have been in place since the ancient Egyptians, demonstrating the vast range of uses and remarkable success that comes as a result of the treatments.
