How to Cure a Skin Disease: Vitiligo

by JS Pasricha

This book, How to Cure a Skin Disease: VITILIGO, focuses on a particular skin disease, namely vitiligo. The author opines that medical practitioners have been able to cure some very serious and even potentially fatal skin diseases like pemphigus, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis, etc. with the dexamethasone-cyclophosphamide pulse (DCP) regimen designed by us for these diseases. The patients have remained free of the disease for 10-20 years of follow-up after completing the treatment without any maintenance therapy. This encouraged the author to believe that skin diseases can, in fact, be cured for life if the patient receives proper medicines in an appropriate dose for an adequate duration of treatment. In all such cases, it is essential that the patient follows the protocol strictly. The Modified Oral Mini-pulse (OMP) regimen designed for curing vitiligo has shown us very promising results and it is hoped that vitiligo can also now be added to the group of Curable Skin Diseases. Written in an easy language and lucid style this book is a welcome addition to the existing literature on skin diseases.
