[New perspectives in treatment of bounded forms of psoriasis].

29 patients with bounded forms of psoriasis (18-52 years old 19 men and 10 women since several months to 15 years suffering from the named illness) once in the morning were treated with Daivobet (ointment for external application). By the 10-14th day after treatment full regress of skin fine eruptions and significant reduction of large nidus and intensity of peeling were observed in 20 patients. PASI index decreased by 60%, that allow use Daivonex ointment (1-2-times a day. For strengthening the effect duration of treatment was about 4-6 weeks. 19 patients continued 21-day treatment with Daivobet after decreasing of PASI index by more than 60% of initial level. In case of neurotic complaints, patients additionally underwent sessions of electronarcosis therapy. The course of medicinal electro narcosis consisted of 5-11 sessions with the frequency of procedures about 2-3-times a week. After this kind of therapy, 60% of patients had remission exceeded 4-6 months in comparison with the data recorded earlier in out-patients department cards. Thus, our observations confirm effectiveness of offered algorithm of psoriasis external therapy by means of Daivobet and Daivonex in combination with electronarcosis.
