In the years 1958—1976 45 patients were treated for Peyronie's disease. In the 2nd group of patients (20 cases) hydrocortisone 25 mg with 0.5% lignocaine 1 ml was administered locally. Some patients received hyaluronidase 1600 u. Additio-nally, vitamin E was given and ultrasounds were applied. Depending on the progress of treatment 2, 4 or 5 series of injections were administered. Follow-up examinations were performed in all cases 6—24 months after completion of treat­ment. Good results were achieved in 81.4% of cases in group I and 95.9% of cases in group II. One patient was treated surgically with removal of the indu-ration. The result was poor, after a short time induration developed again and decreased in size anly after 4 series of local injections. By planimetry the dimi-nution of induration was determined in group II and was found to rangę from 50% to 90.0% of its initial size. In only 2 cases after one series of injections the diminution in the size of induration was 9.0 and 28.0%. Treatment is effective if the infection is madę into the induration from different directions.
