Triamcinolone was administered sublesionally to 48 patients with various dermatoses of the legs and feet. Results were satisfactory in 94 percent of those treated. Gratifying results were obtained in patients who had suffered from intractable psoriasis of many years' duration, great cosmetic and psychological improvement being noted in these individuals. Side effects consisted mainly of atrophy, which was of insignificant consequence in almost all instances. This administration, performed as directed, is recommended for a great number of skin disorders commonly encountered in podiatry.
