ABSTRACT: Photoactivated psoralens were studied in sixty cases of tuberculoid leprosy for the repigmentation of hypopigmented macules. It was observed that in 42 (70 percent) cases there was significant repigmentation within 6 months of therapy; in 5 (8.33 percent) cases there was mild to moderate repigmentation and in 13 (22.64 percent) cases, there was no change. No significant untoward effects of drug were encountered, except in four patients (6.66 percent), who developed, marked erythema and eczematous reaction.
