|Rodent ulcers can be very frustrating to treat. A wide variation of treatments have been applied in cases of eosinophilic granuloma, reflecting the lack of any one uniformly successful treatment, and the unsatisfactory outcome of treatment in many patients. It would seem that the most successful approach is a four to six week course of the steroid prednisolone. This may resolve the lesion, but, if not, it may be followed by cryosurgery - a double cycle of controlled freezing and thawing. Although this inevitably leads to some scarring, recurrence seems less frequent than with other methods of treatment. In some cases Ovarid has also been used successfully. Whatever treatment is used, recurrence is common and the treatment may have to be repeated.
