Henry Ford Hospital dermatology experience with Levulan Kerastick and blue light photodynamic therapy

Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Rivard J, Ozog D

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) takes advantage of our understanding of the cutaneous response to topically applied porphyrins to selectively destroy malignant or premalignant cells. This type of therapy has been used to treat a variety of cutaneous diseases, including actinic keratoses, basal cell carcinoma, acne, and others. The treatment protocols are not standardized across institutions. We present the Henry Ford Dermatology protocol and early results of our first 150 treatments with PDT.
