Abstract

A large number of treatment modalities have been used to treat keloid scars, with varying degrees of success. A modified combination therapy consisting of cryotherapy and intralesional triamcinolone injection has given good results in 43 patients, with complete resolution in 28% and significant improvement in 44%. We find it particularly useful for treating recurrent and/or difficult keloids.
