Abstract: Intradermotherapy is a medical procedure introduced by Pistor in 1958 that consists in the appli-
cation of intradermal injections of diluted pharmacological substances that are given directly into the
region to be treated. There are reports of the use of intradermotherapy to treat painful diseases, skin disea-
ses and unaesthetic conditions. Medical clinics have been recently offering the treatment of intradermo-
therapy, using the more popular name for this practice - mesotherapy.
There is only scant scientific information about this subject published in periodicals indexed on MedLine.
Only a few states rigorously pursue this method. Most indexed publications about this subject deal with
the complications of this technique.
Unaesthetic dermatoses have been a common complaint in dermatologic clinics, and it has become neces-
sary to have scientific evidence to give to patients. Therefore, well-researched scientific studies about this
technique are necessary to offer data to medical professionals that will clearly explain to patients both the
benefits and the risks of these procedures.
A bibliographical review was conducted and we verified the need for new studies with adequate methods
to confirm the benefits of intradermotherapy as used in dermatologic treatment.

Resumo: A intradermoterapia é um procedimento médico introduzido por Pistor, em 1958, e consiste na
aplicação, diretamente na região a ser tratada, de injeções intradérmicas de substâncias farmacológicas
muito diluídas. Esse método é capaz de estimular o tecido que recebe os medicamentos tanto pela ação da
punctura quanto pela ação dos fármacos, e apregoa-se que sua vantagem é evitar o uso de medicação sistê-
mica. Há relatos da utilização da intradermoterapia para tratamento de doenças dolorosas, dermatoses e
condições consideradas inestéticas. Atualmente, clínicas médicas oferecem esse tratamento, utilizando,
porém, o nome mais popular para essa prática, mesoterapia. Há escassa informação científica sobre o tema
publicada em periódicos indexados no MedLine e poucos estudos com metodologia mais rigorosa sobre a
eficácia e o mecanismo de ação da via intradérmica. A maioria das publicações indexadas sobre esse tema
versa sobre as complicações dessa técnica. As dermatoses inestéticas têm se tornado queixas frequentes nos
consultórios dermatológicos, sendo necessário um embasamento científico para lidar com tais pacientes, os
quais, muitas vezes, estão em busca das novidades mostradas através da mídia. Assim, há necessidade de
estudos cientificamente bem conduzidos sobre essa técnica. Estes estudos deverão oferecer aos médicos
elementos para esclarecer os pacientes sobre quais benefícios esperar e quais os riscos de tal abordagem.
Desse modo, realizou-se uma revisão bibliográfica sobre o assunto e constatou-se a necessidade de novos
estudos com metodologia adequada para a confirmação dos benefícios da intradermoterapia como ferra-
menta útil no tratamento dermatológico.
