The treatment of multiple intraepidermal carcinomas(IEC) with weekly chemo-wraps of topical 5-flurouracil(5-FU) under occlusion has been previously reported;however, the dressings previously described require spe-cialist weekly application and are intensive in terms ofstaff hours and patient visits. The management of dissemi-nated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) with 5-FUchemo wraps has yet to be reported. Both conditions rep-resent treatment dilemmas for clinicians with many treat-ment modalities showing limited success. We report asuccessful case series of a modified method for 5-FUtwice weekly overnight occlusive wraps in the treatmentof both multiple IEC on the legs and DSAP on the armband legs.
