To the Editor:—
In QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (198:1039, 1966), there was a request for information about the proper treatment of exuberant granulation tissue in preparation for skin grafting. For many years I have used only a cortisone ointment, which in two to seven days quickly causes the exuberant granulation tissue to disappear and leave a healthy granulation tissue that permits normal epithelialization of a cutaneous wound or is suitable for skin grafting. This method is elegant, painless, and definitive.
