Abstract: Cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen is a surgical resource to treat several types of benign, pre-malignant and malignant skin lesions. It promotes the destruction of tissues and changes the immune response. The authors identify several uses of cryosurgery in treating skin disorders, particularly viral warts, chromoblastomycosis and leishmaniasis. The results of primary and adjuvant treatments are also discussed. The article focuses on precautions when using surgical instruments during treatment of infectious diseases. ©2008 by Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia.
