Topical corticosteroids have always been considered the first-line treatment for inflammatory diseases of the skin, such as psoriasis. In this setting, the combination of corticosteroids with D3 analogues is also recommended by current guidelines. In this review, we discuss the role of mometasone furoate, a corticosteroid, and tacalcitol, a synthetic vitamin D3 analog, also in a potentially-effective sequential therapy for mild-to-moderate psoriasis. This approach could represent a suitable treatment strategy for psoriatic patients who need a prompt relief of symptoms with no or limited side effects.


KEY WORDS: Mometasone furoate - Psoriasis - 1 Alpha,24-dihydroxyvitamin D3
