Intralesional steroid injection in the treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids has been well known for many years. In order to determine whether this therapy can still be recommended, 57 patients with hypertrophic scars or keloids received high-pressure injections of triamcinolon acetonide (Dermojet). 50% of the cases showed significant improvement with respect to scar color, itching and scar elevation. Thus, triamcinolon acetonide therapy is indicated in particular cases.
