Abstract

Precancerous skin lesions are associated with high probability of malignant transformation to squamous cell carcinoma. Early detection and management are necessary to improve prognosis and outcomes. Literatures showed that topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising treatment method which can be successfully applied in several conditions in dermatology. This study aims to review the efficacy of topical PDT for various precancerous lesions in dermatology, such as actinic keratosis, Bowen disease, and Bowenoid papulosis.
