Photodynamic therapy is a promising treatment modality for a variety of cutaneous neoplasms and other skin disorders. Studies suggest an involvement of multiple pathways during photodynamic-therapy-mediated cell death. A complete knowledge of the mechanisms involved in photodynamic therapy may lead...
