    Topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is increasingly accepted and used as a highly effective treatment for superficial non-melanoma skin cancer and dysplasia. We describe the developments in topical PDT for the treatment of skin diseases in our own PDT Centre in Dundee, both clinically and from a research base. Improvements in PDT could be achieved by optimisation of photosensitiser and light delivery, and these goals underpin the aims of our centre. We hope to facilitate the dissemination of use of PDT in dermatology throughout Scotland and outline some of the progress in these areas.
