Objective: It was aimed to show the range and application of intralesional drug treatment in a single dermatology outpatient department in this study.

Material and Method: Patients who were treated intralesionally for any dermatological disease were retrospectively examined between January 2016 and January 2017. Intralesionally delivered agents, dermatological diseases and number of patients receiving therapy were noted.

Results: The data of three hundred and forty-four patients were retrospectively analyzed. Twenty four different dermatological diseases were treated intralesionally with nine different agents. Of 344 patients, 179 (52 %) were male, 165 (48%) were female. Their average age was 34,5 years old. The most common indication for intralesional treatment during this period was alopecia areata consisting of 183 in number. Only one case of significant adverse effect was seen in a female patient who was treated for her oral lichen planus.

Conclusion: It is shown that a dermatologist can overcome many challenging problems with this simple, easy and inexpensive method.
