Phototherapy and photochemotherapy are widely used effective treatment modalities for many skin diseases. The data regarding the efficacy of maintenance narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) and psoralen and UVA (PUVA) therapies, the most commonly used photo(chemo) therapy methods, in the literature are limited and controversial. In this review article, the data and guidelines in the literature regarding maintenance NB-UVB and PUVA therapy in psoriasis, mycosis fungoides and vitiligo, and maintenance photo(chemo)therapy applications in BafÅŸlkent University and other photo(chemo) therapy centers are presented. Prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled, long-term multicenter studies using standard treatment protocols are needed to obtain the best data about the efficacy and safety of maintenance photo(chemo)therapy applications.
