• Five patients with chronic intermittent palmoplantar pustulosis were treated with intralesional injections of 3.3 to 5.0 mg/mL of triamcinolone acetonide. Prompt clearing of symptoms and lesions ensued, lasting three to six months. Despite the discomfort experienced from the injections, patients preferred this treatment modality over others. Minor side effects included hypopigmentation, cutaneous atrophy, and, in one case, exacerbation of a latent dermatophyte infection.
