Abstract

A new cortisone derivative for topical use, fluazacort, Azacortid Richter Crema was compared with betamethasone valerate in 40 patients (30 with various forms of eczema and 10 with psoriasis), with bilateral symmetrical lesions. The double-blind technique was used. A high level of efficacy of fluazacort was observed. However, the main problem of topical cortisone preparations is not that of activity but that of tolerance. In this respect, also, fluazacort proved adequate: its absorption in the system is minimal, and the excipient contains no substances liable to cause undesirable side effects or allergic reactions.
