Author information

Department of Dermatology, General Infirmary, Leeds, U.K.


Keloid scarring presents a difficult therapeutic problem. It is a recognized sequel to acne vulgaris, and may be extensive and disfiguring. The data from this double-blind study, in which intralesional triamcinolone or cryosurgery were used as treatment for keloids, demonstrate that by treating early, and in particular vascular, keloids with the latter, 85% will show a moderate to good response in terms of flattening. Treatment with intralesional triamcinolone was also beneficial, but the response to cryosurgery was significantly better in early, vascular lesions.
