Sažetak

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory, immune-mediated disease of the skin and other organ systems, which affects 2-3 % of the entire world population and represents a significant public health problem. It is desirable that modern psoriasis therapy has long-term efficacy and a good safety profile, and today includes the use of local and systemic therapy, as well as phototherapy and photochemotherapy. Phototherapy is carried out by exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet A and B radiation, while conventional photochemotherapy involves using of ultraviolet radiation and a photosensitizing drug. Both forms of therapy have proven to be highly effective, especially when combined with certain local or systemic medications. Nowadays, a holistic approach to treating psoriasis, such as balneophototherapy, is also increasingly common, thanks to which numerous countries have become well-known health resort destinations.
