Since introduced in 1961, intralesional (IL) agent has become an essential part of the dermatological practice. The term IL referred to the direct delivery of agent percutaneously into skin lesions. This therapeutic approach is relatively safe, easy to perform and applicable for a broad range of dermatological conditions. On the other hand, immediate side effects, including pain during administration, bleeding, high risk of infection and allergic reaction, and subsequent side effects involving skin changes such as atrophy, telangiectasia, pigmentary changes, and striae are usually associated with this modality. This review paper highlights the pros and cons of IL agents in modern dermatology practice.
