Abstract

Skin cryosurgery has always been an integral part of dermatology and is widely used in the treatment of cutaneous lesions. Cryosurgery is an excellent and one of the most commonly performed techniques to treat benign, premalignant and malignant lesions of the skin. It has become routine practice in many centers to use freeze-thaw cycles in the treatment of the common types of benign skin tumors. Over the past two decades it has also begun to be more frequently used for the treatment of malignant skin tumors. Because begin lesions require a shorter duration and less deep application of sub-zero temperatures than malignant lesions, it is posible to achieve good to excellent cosmetic results.
