Betamethasone-I7, 2I-dipropionate ointment: an effective topical preparation in lichen ruber planus.

Abstract

A clinical evaluation was carried out in 19 patients with lichen ruber planus to assess the effectiveness of 0.05% betamethasone-17,21-dipropionate ointment in the treatment of patients whose lesions had developed resistance to prolonged treatment with 0.1% betamethasone-17-valerate ointment. The new steroid ointment was substituted for the previous preparation and applied at the same frequency, once or twice daily, for 2 to 3 weeks. The results at the end of the betamethasone-17,21-dipropionate period were classified as better in 14 (73.7%) and equal in the remaining 5 patients.
