Vitiligo is a skin disease having an impact on the quality of life. Phototherapy or photochemotherapy are the first-line treatment choices in generalized vitiligo and are among the most effective treatment modalities either alone or in combination with other therapies. Treatment methods with ultraviolet include oral / topical psoralen plus UVA (PUVA), psoralen plus sunlight (PUVAsol), UVA, broadband UVB, narrowband UVB, excimer laser, monochromatic excimer light and sunlight. This review focuses on the modalities, principals and studies of UV treatment in vitiligo.
