    Introduction: Large prospective studies evaluating efficacy of narrow band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) in psoriasis in terms of PASI75 and PASI90 are scarce in the literature. Material and methods: A prospective, open and observational study was conducted. Patients treated with narrow band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) for psoriasis was included.
