Fifty-eight patients with keloid scars were subjected to combined cryosurgery and intralesional corticosteroid therapy. Complete regression of the scars occurred in 41 patients. In 8 patients the scars improved, and there was no improvement in 9 patients. Keloid scars of the earlobes were the most responsive to treatment.
The possibility of differing biological activity of cryosurgery and corticosteroids complementing each other is postulated, and a combination of their respective actions may offer promise in treatment.
